Town of Runners: A Documentary About Incredible Ethiopian Distance Runners

The Ethiopian highland town of Bekoji sits 2810 meters (just over 9,000 feet) above sea level, and is home to 16,000 citizens — many of whom aspire and excel in the same discipline. Town of Runners is a documentary following two young friends as they train, chase success, dream and come of age in a place that has produced an incredible eight Olympic gold medals, 10 world records and 32 world championships. The film is directed by Jerry Rothwell, and will be released to theaters on April 20 by Dogwoof.
