    Running the streets of Rome in 1960 an unknown barefoot Ethiopian man stunned the world by winning Olympic gold in the marathon. He repeated a similar feat four years later at the Tokyo Olympiad. One evening returning to his home in Addis Ababa after training, fate would present him with his greatest challenge: to dig deep within, not just to run the next mile, but to find the will to live.

    an exceptionally good biopic told with style and nuance.

    Davey Frankel and Rasselas Lakew's debut collaboration is a visually ravishing, revelatory mixed-medium narrative of the great Ethiopian marathon runner Abebe Bikila… A global indie film that could have been made by David Lean - it's that quietly epic in scope and ambition.

    This event is supported by Norfolk Community Cohesion Network in partnership with Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Black History Month.
