Title: Desert Runners
Director: Jennifer Steinman
Plot: Jennifer Steinman’s documentary — part-financed by Kickstarter — delves into ultra-marathon running in some of the world’s most beautiful, gruelling landscapes.
Meet four extreme athletes as they take on the 4 Deserts challenge in the Atacama, Gobi and Sahara, and in Antarctica.
Each has their own story, their own reason for wanting to push themselves to the limit. Each has their own path to their own destination.
What the critics said: “It’s compelling, telling and it will make you get up off your sofa – even if it’s just to climb the stairs.” (Lee Stobbs, GQ)
