A thrillingly expansive portrait of China as observed in the cramped compartments of its trains, J.P. Sniadecki’s The Iron Ministry is a vivid social document and a bold aesthetic work. Shot over three years and dozens of rides, the film seamlessly unfolds as a single voyage, Sniadecki’s indefatigable camera instigating several conversations along the way that may surprise audiences for their political candor.
