A screening of ‘Town of Runners’ will take place at Brighton & Hove High Senior School. This is a feature documentary about young people from the Ethiopian rural town of Bekoji, whose runners have won eight Olympic Gold medals, thirty-two World Championships and broken ten world records in the last twenty years. The film follows two girls as they strive to emulate their local heroes, making the journey from school track to national competition and from childhood to adulthood.
Tickets are priced at £5 each. All profits from the screening of the film will go towards funding for coaches and supporting the outreach in Bekoji. The film producer Dan Demissie will be present for Qs & As and there will be a Fairtrade winetasting.
