Here is a Mandarin interview with the director Lixin Fan (訪紀錄片歸途列車導演范立新) posted on Dec 7, 2010 conducted by a US TV station.
“Last Train Home, a documentary that looks at Chinese peasants, and four other documentaries that focus on various hot-button topics from the American scene, have been nominated by the Directors Guild of America for its outstanding directorial achievement in documentary.”
Congrats Lixin, I am really excited for Lixin as ‘Last Train Home‘ is his debut film!
