Tales From The Rails – As the 1980’s came to an end, so did the graffiti on New York City’s subway trains. During this same era graffiti writers were just beginning to discover the possibilities of painting America’s freight-train system. In ‘92, filmmaker M. Nielsen began documenting this phenomenon. For this film he captured hundreds of classic works from coast to coast, recorded interviews and documented live missions. Tales From The Rails is a presentation of the ‘Freight Movement’ filmed over an 8 year time span and shot in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
