THE LONG DISTANCE
For years, Kenya has produced the best marathon runners in the world. Athletics’ supreme discipline has long been established as a globally-networked business. The filmmaker, Daniel Sager, shows the interdependence between two Kenyan runners and their German manager and holds a mirror up to us all. More than just a film about marathons.
