The Train Driver

The Train Driver


An emotionally disturbed train driver wanders into the graveyard of a desolate squatter camp on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth. There he meets Simon Hanabe, a gravedigger, who buries the nameless dead. The train driver is trying to find the grave of a nameless woman and child.

Dedicated to Pumla Lolwana and her three children - Lindani, Andile and Sesanda - who died on the railway tracks between Philippi and Nyanga on The Cape Flats on Friday December 8th 2000.
