Ethiopian (English subtitles)
For the inhabitants of Bekoji in Ethiopia, running is a way of life. Many of the town’s children get up extra early just to run. Over the years, Bekoji’s runners have won eight Olympic gold medals, thirty-two world championships and broken ten world records. Focusing on the stories of two young athletes, Hawii and Alemi, this thoughtful documentary seeks not only to discover the secret of the region’s success, but also to examine the feelings and emotions of the competitors, and how they cope with the burden of expectation and the threat of failure.
On the eve of the 2012 Olympics, this compelling documentary throws a spotlight on some of the young British sporting heroes hoping to compete there.
