How Adam Irving stayed the course to make 'Off the Rails'

Hosted by ,  • 

When aspiring documentarian Adam Irving approached Darius McCollum about telling his story, he learned he was the 27th person who hoped to make a film about this obsessed New Yorker who just can't stop stealing trains and buses despite repeated incarcerations. Irving tells us how he succeeded where others failed, and how his documentary Off the Rails turned into something more than the simple caper movie he originally intended to make.
