“Notes from the Underground” is a film about those who work on the London Underground. Unlike many other European city transport systems where technology prevails, here many tasks are still performed by people as opposed to machines. However, on this, the oldest and busiest public transport network in the world, the workers often go unnoticed. The film will explore a nowadays rarely visible part of this mammoth machine: the people who run it. And no other place would lend itself to this visual form of documentary, other than the crowded microcosm of the Tube.
