This beautifully simple, short documentary about runners in Victoria Park is blowing up the interwebs.
Matan Rochlitz and Ivo Gormley released the short film, called ‘The Runners’ on 15 November. The pair thought that as running puts participants in a meditative state, it would open up interviews in honest frank, personal exchanges that they may normally be hesitant to.
Using a bike with a cart attached for the cameraman, the pair interviewed groups of runners through changing seasons.
One interviewee is humbling in his honesty about his determination to run a marathon for his father, who suffers from dementia…others are open and funny.
All have wise words. Go peep and learn something…even if it’s just you spend a little more time running to get you into ‘that’ mental space.
