3100: Run and Become – The Movie
will be showing at the Watershed in Bristol on March the 8th. The movie centers on the Self-Transcendence 3100 mile race which takes place in Queens in New York City. It follows Ashprihanal Aalto, a Finnish courier, and Shamita Achenbach-Koenig, an Austrian cellist who take part in the event, the world’s longest annual footrace. The story captures the esoteric, spiritual side of running, applying traditional yet universal ideas in a modern context.
The film features such diverse locales as New York, to places around the world where ancient cultures have held running sacred, such as the forests of Finland, the mountains of Japan, the Kalahari Desert in Africa and the Navajo Nation Reservation in Arizona. It also features the stories of three other runners – Shaun Martin, a Navajo runner and Board Member of Wings of America, Gaolo of the San Bushmen of the Kalahari, and Gyoman-san of the Monks of Mt. Hiei, Japan, who run not for glory but for spiritual enlightenment, universal oneness or because they simply have the responsibility to run.
