"Mr. Siebert" is episode 50 in Interview Project
, directed by Austin Lynch and Jason S. They interviewed 121 people during a 70-day road trip covering 20,000 miles. Their film notes:
While driving through Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, we came across a young woman who told us about Mr. Siebert and his trolley cars. We found his house and rang the bell. Mr. Siebert answered the door and led us into his basement to show us the Venango Traction Company - his trolley layout in quarter-inch scale. Mr. Siebert is a retired environmental engineer who spent most of his life working with the water department. His wife passed away 14 years ago and he has been living alone ever since. Aside from daily walks, his trolley line is what keeps him busy and he works on it almost every night.
of this episode. Much like Wash-35 in Philip K. Dick's Now Wait for Last Year, Mr. Siebert has reconstructed his childhood in a physical form.
