DAMPF, STAHL & LEIDENSCHAFT (Steam, Steel & Passion) – three words that sum up the latest film shot by Dresden-based director Sebastian Linda for the Saxony Steam Train Route. Steel monsters under steam are fired up every day by train drivers and stokers with genuine passion, pride and attention to detail, much to the delight of passengers old and young. The Saxony Steam Train Route brings together five narrow-gauge railways operating on a daily timetable, rail history museums and various other attractions. Sebastian Linda’s film captivates, both for its dynamic views and live action scenes, as well as a gentler perspective of bygone times. DAMPF, STAHL & LEIDENSCHAFT takes you on a cinematic journey from the Erzgebirge to the Elbland, Dresden and Upper Lusatia.
