2016 / 89min / DCP

DIRECTOR: ADAM IRVING

Darius McCollum has always loved the NYC Transit System, memorizing every line by age eight and conducting his first train on the E line when he was fifteen. He has done it countless times since. But Darius is not an MTA employee, and his impersonations have led to dozens of arrests and twenty-three years of his life spent in maximum security prison. Off the Rails is the true story of a man diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome whose compulsion has made him both a folk hero and a tragic example of the criminalization of a person attempting to channel his passions into a productive life.

A Film Collaborative release.
