“Personal injury at track level! ” This is the somewhat euphemistic formulation when someone has voluntarily put an end to their life with the help of a train. For the person committing suicide, this seems to be a sure thing because no one survives a collision with a train that easily. Most of the reports are about the deceased, rarely about the bereaved. But what about the train drivers who become unintentional witnesses of traumatizing accidents?
In the short film ATTENTION ALL PASSENGERS, which works a lot with symbols, four Slovak train drivers share their experiences. And they have many stories to tell because not only suicide victims meet their deaths on the tracks.
