Trainsforming America addresses the imperative need of high-speed rail in America from the awareness and funding provided by the US Government to the actual need of every-day Americans across the country. “The reason I made this film is because I feel a heightened sense of responsibility to do whatever I can to ensure that my generation’s opportunities are no longer car dependent,” film-director Rebecca Autumn Sansom told Inhabitat.
The film is followed by a presentation on the new Master Plan for the Los Angeles Union Station conducted by Debra Gerod, FAIA of Gruen Associates, the firm responsible for the master plan. The new plan aims to encompass all forms of transit including biking, walking, buses, local and regional trains, and even the LA River. “We understood that to be successful, it was not enough to figure out how to make transit work at the station.” explains Debra Gerod, FAIA.
The presentation is followed by an on-stage interview of Ms. Gerod by the film’s director, Ms. Sansom.
