‘The Runners’ – A short film

Why do we rehearse arguments in the shower? Why do we zone out on public transport? What do we think about while we’re running?

I recently stumbled upon Aeon Film, a e-magazine that releases three short films or documentaries each week. One of the best films I saw was The Runners (11 Min). Reminiscent of Lift, the film looks at real people and honest emotion (I hope anyway).

The documentary makers confront people while they’re running and challenge them with intimate questions. Before long, the runners drop their guard and confess surprising details about their lives. Their stories may not be dramatic or complex, but there is something raw and endearing about what they have to say.
