Cure for the Crash screening at the Franklin Institute

The train hopping subculture gets the indie film treatment in Brian Paul’s Cure for the Crash.  From the press release:

“Just beyond the tracks and the world you find familiar, endures a freedom found on the edges of American excess.  I traveled these outer limits via the art of hopping freight trains with a photographer named Sepher and a brave women named Ruin.  We rode through mountains, over clear meadows, near hidden canyons, along sprawling farms and countless other American landscapes.  Not a weight in the world can hold on to you through the harsh elements of freight-train-winds.  It’s life changing.  I’ve found my way out here, but have I gone too far to come home…”.

Cure for the Crash screens on Friday June 24th at 7:00 PM on the Franklin Institute’s IMAX dome with filmmaker Brian Paul in attendance.  Watch the trailer here, it looks rather impressive.
