Film: Town of Runners is Coming to DC!

I did a mental backflip when I checked my email the other day and saw that the Town of Runners documentary will be screened at the World Bank’s Africa Film Series in DC. For those who missed the chance to watch it online at the Tribeca Film Festival back in April, this is your chance.

A bit about Town of Runners:

The film tells the story of two young girls, living in a rural town as they try to run their way to a different life.

Narrated by their friend Biruk, it follows their highs and lows over three years as they try to become professional athletes. Through their struggle, the film gives a unique insight into the ambitions of young Ethiopians living between tradition and the modern world.

The film will be shown on Thursday, July 26 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the World Bank, 1818 H Street, Preston Auditorium. RSVP here. After the screening, there will be a discussion with the filmmakers. Be there or be square.
