1. Human beings don’t always make rational decisions. But making irrational decisions is precisely what makes us human. These decisions, based on an impulse or a feeling, often lead us to those perfect moments when it feels great to be alive.
    "The Beauty of the Irrational" follows Ryan Sandes, a South African Ultra-Runner, as he returns to the Fish River Canyon to run the 5 day, 84km, Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail in the fastest time possible.
    He completed the run, self-supported, in amazing time of 6h57min!

  2. Told from the point-of-view of runners from all walks of life, the film explores the inspiration and motivation that modern cultures associate with running.

    On the surface, the reasons people run seem obvious; health, stress, competition to name a few. But what if there is a deeper, more intrinsic compulsion that connects people who choose to run for enjoyment regardless of genetic, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious or 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. We aim to find out what it is.

    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, triumph, freedom and companionship, with one goal in mind; to find out what moves them.

    Everyday more and more people are making running part of their daily routines and part of their lives. So we are setting out on a quest to ask as them just one simple question; What Moves You?

  4. Ronnie Goodman may well be San Francisco's most unexpected half-marathoner. This is the story of why he runs.

    If you are inspired, please consider contributing to Ronnie's cause. He recently ran The Second Half of The SF Marathon to give back to the organization that helped him when he needed it most. hospitalityhouse.org/runronnierun.html

    Ronnie is also a painter, and his art can be seen at ronniegoodman.com.

  5. Pounding the tarmac through the seasons, a band of runners are brazenly challenged with intimate questions as they pace their routes. Liberated from responsibilities, their guards drop dramatically, releasing funny and brutally frank confessions, and weaving a powerful narrative behind the anonymous masses.

    A film by Matan Rochlitz & Ivo Gormley.
