The film tells the story of a group of Americans and Russians who are trying to build the InterContinental Railway, which would link North America and Asia via the world's longest train tunnel beneath the Bering Strait. It was shot over the past twelve years in Alaska, Arizona, Russia, and Europe, and features a colorful cast of characters and stunning landscapes. The screening will be followed by Q&A and an opportunity to meet the filmmaker. The film (running time: just under two hours) will be shown in the original English and Russian with German subtitles. Tickets are available at the box office on the evening of the screening.
