Great Short Film

The Runners Film Title Card

The Runners is an exquisitely made short film. It's a meditation on the human condition exploring issues such as ageing, childlessness, marriage, mental health problems and sex. The filmmakers seek the views of a cross-section of runners as they pound the tarmac in London's parks.

The parkland settings and the seasonal variation add extra dimensions to the fairly simple idea of exploring our individual thoughts and views as we run. From that basic premise Matan Rochlitz and Ivo Gormley have created something quite special.
