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.
