Run for Life (2011) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Run for Life.
In 2007, Ethiopian marathon runners Gebre Egziabher Gebre Sellasie, Tamirat Legesse and Estifanos Eshetu travel to Montenegro to compete. Some days later they wind up in Belgrade, Serbia filing for asylum. Stuck for months in a refugee camp, they ultimately contact a local sports club that puts them in touch with a sympathetic trainer. That coach, Zoran Molovic, takes them on as clients, providing them accommodation at his home in the small farming village of Pambukovica in return for their work around the place and a share of their eventual winnings.It’s about this time that the young runners come to the attention of director Maticevic, a marathoner himself. Immediately bonding with the Ethiopians – and buying them some new shoes – Maticevic starts to follow their life in the village, training regimen and races, and their quest for Serbian citizenship.
