The Runer

The Runer

The Runner is a film about endurance. It is an exploration of what drives us to take risks, and make sacrifices, for a cause that is virtually unknown. It is a film about the burden of being a hero told through the story of a champion long-distance runner Salah Ameidan whose journey has transformed him from an athlete into the symbol of a national liberation movement. Salah runs for a country that doesn't exist; he is in Western Sahara - officially Africa's last colony and under Moroccan occupation since 1975.
