The Train Driver (short film in production)

So far, Bernd Ziegler has never talked about the dead. While fishing on the North Sea, he tells us how his childhood dream of becoming a train driver actually came true – and how he killed six people during his career. Six people who jumped in front of his train and made him their enforcer.


Ziegler describes how he used to go surfcasting after the incidents, how the fishing and the sea calmed him, made him forget what had happened. Back then there was no psychotherapeutic care for train drivers and the subject of suicide was taboo among colleagues.
