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.
British director Tony Richardson's hard-hitting coming of age tale stars Tom Courtenay as a working class kid whose athletic talent sets him apart.
