"Filmed over three years on China's railways, J. P. Sniadecki's masterful documentary traces the vast interiors of a country on the move: flesh and metal, clangs and squeals, light and dark, language and gesture. Scores of rail journeys come together into one, capturing the thrills and anxieties of social and technological transformation. THE IRON MINISTRY immerses audiences in fleeting relationships and uneasy encounters between humans and machines on what will soon be the world's largest railway network"--Container.

A few lapses (like the 2-3 minutes of black screen in the beginning) into artiness, take time away from the true grit and the broad spectrum of lives and thoughts in the dynamic social movement of China today. Over 1.3 billion people to ponder, and hardly time to watch and listen to each, but worth it for these few.
