Train takes us on a voyage through dark and surreal landscapes of imagination. Directed by its tracks, it touches different stages of life: from affection, knowledge, dreams to loneliness and death.

A story about voyage, an allegory about determination, destiny and existence.

Olivier Chabalier (1980) studied film at the University Censier - Paris 3 and directed several music videos, mixing live action and animation, which were selected at international festivals.
In 2010 he founded the company GASP! together with Clémence Marcadier in order to make their own films but also to produce the films by authors sharing their taste for ambitious and singular cinema. Train is his first short film.
