Last Train, a short documentary by Matt Knarr, and Will Snyder

Wednesday, 22 February, 2017

Last Train, in this case the last service of the day on a suburban line in the Canadian city of Toronto, is a short documentary directed by Matt Knarr, and filmed by Will Snyder.

Catching the last train of the day is a world removed from travelling during the day, or the morning and evening commuter peaks. The silence of the almost deserted platforms is eerie. The fluorescent lights of the trains and stations seem harsher, to the point they’re bleaching.

But there can also be a certain camaraderie amongst last train of the night travellers, an experience that’s elegantly captured here.
