A documentary about New England, vandalism, and an obsession with trains. Year-round Metal Enjoyment follows several freight train graffiti artists into a world of steel and spray while exploring the Northeast’s many ties to the railroad earth. With over a year and a half of shooting (and rising), more than a dozen interviews from some of the area’s most notorious artists, as well as railfans and workers, Mint Films gives an in-depth look into this obscure and elusive world.
“A mix of clips of the New York City subway system on film, mostly from the ’70s and early ’80s, when graffiti was a mainstay on train cars and everything underground was, for the most part, grittier and more worn than it is today. The exact date range is 1966 to 1984…in other words, Lindsay to Koch.” – Jonathan Hertzberg
