That is the question the filmmakers Bruce, Dave and Jason is asking us when working on their documentary movie about what moves runners. A film made by runners, for runners.
Initial production and shooting is taking place in Portland, Oregon, during the Portland Marathon. Told from the point-of-view of runners from all walks of life, the documentary will explore the inspiration and motivation that modern cultures associate with running.Over the years more and more people are making running part of their daily routines or a life-long mission. On the surface, the reasons people run seem obvious; vanity, health, stress, competition to name a few. But what of there is a deeper, more intrinsic compulsion that connects people who choose to run for enjoyment regardless of ethic, socioeconomic, religious, geographical backgrounds or their physical differences?Runners share an uncommon bond in today’s society, whether it’s through participation in the events or a simple ‘hey’ on an isolated nature trail. With breathtaking landscapes, high-profiles races and quirky tribal-like parades as the backdrop, we join hardcore and casual runners alike on their individual journeys to health and wellness, weight loss, competition, stress release and companionship, with one goal in mind; to find out what moves them.
