Rubén and Cristina took a long train ride — 7,500 kilometers from Beijing to Ulan Bator to Moscow — over a period of three weeks and this is the film they made, all shot with the Canon 7D and a single lens.

Although the two spent about two-thirds of their time exploring the countryside, “Transmongolian” stays on the train, and though you might think that would get claustrophobic, it doesn’t. Rather, it reminds you how big the world still is, how different it is, and how romantic rail travel can be.
