Off The Rails, Sunday April 2 MNFF Winter Screening Series
"...On April 2, at 2pm, the Series continues with Off The Rails, the riveting documentary from director Adam Irving that tells the remarkable true story of Darius McCollum, a man with Asperger’s syndrome whose overwhelming love of transit has landed him in jail 32 times for the criminal impersonation of NYC subway drivers, conductors, bus drivers, token booth clerks, and track repairmen. Currently incarcerated at Riker’s Island, yet again, Mr. McCollum puts in sharp focus the line between benevolence and risking the public’s safety."
Immediately following the movie Megan Mayo, Applied Behavior Analysis Director at the Counseling Service of Addison County, will be available to talk about the movie, answer questions and help direct you to resources.
