The Driver unfolds a short poem about a train that is on a compulsive rush to an unknown destination.
It is inspired by a period in my life where I had to spend many hours on a train for work.
The story of the train conceals an allegory to the challenge of putting a stop to self destructing patterns.
Whereas the poem and film are inspired by a my personal experience, It relates to the collective as well, over society's lack of ability in embracing well-needed change.
The Design of the train is inspired by the locomotive train designed by Machinefabriek Breda.
