freedom to run

Sunday 21 January, 2024 4 p.m.

Screening ‘Freedom To Run’ followed by a Q&A with co-directors Cairsti Russell and Stephen Sheriff.

This is a Pay What You Can screening, with all profits going to Medical Aid for Palestinians

Palestinians in the West Bank cannot travel more than ten kilometres before being stopped by Israeli restrictions. Checkpoints, demands for permits, and the apartheid wall surrounding the occupied territories are all part of the struggle of daily life. Freedom to Run follows the Palestinian running group Right to Movement and a group from Glasgow, as they train for and run both the Palestine and Edinburgh marathons. Whilst in Palestine, the Scottish runners learn about the impact of the restrictions on everyday life, and that something as universal as running is far from an easy task. The runners discover that they are not so different, but that they live very different lives.
