BEST DOCUMENTARY OF 2010 - LOS ANGELES FILM CRITICS CIRCLE

“A beautifully shot, haunting and haunted large-scale portrait.”
—Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Every spring, China’s cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year’s holiday. This mass exodus is the world’s largest human migration —an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Working over several years in classic verité style, Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan (with the producers of the award-winning hit documentary Up the Yangtze) travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades. Emotionally engaging and starkly beautiful, Last Train Home’s intimate observation of one fractured family sheds light on the human cost of China’s ascendance as an economic superpower.


DVD Extras Include:

- 16:9 anamorphic transfer, created from HD elements
- Deleted Scenes, from Guangzhou Train Station
- Travelogue: Guang’an to Shenzhen City
- U.S. Theatrical Trailer
