Up until 50 years ago, running was a sport only permitted to men and restricted to a few events. Morath’s documentary aims to trace throughout history the epic adventure of this phenomenon that has turned into a universal passion. 

Panorama / Passions
Premier latinoamericana

At the beginning of the film, a character goes out to a balcony that allows us to see New York’s Central Park, a sacred place for runners. He says he used to run there, that over the course of an hour he would run into five or six runners and know every one of them, because they were few. Free to Run is the story of the rise of running and its pioneers: revolutionary organizers, runners that marked a milestone, women that broke the barriers of prejudice –subjects that could make up for three separate documentaries and to which we would have to add many more. But Free to Run makes a great effort to summarize all of this, and the results are brilliant. For those who love to run, a dozen scenes could drive them to tears. Far from closing the subject, the film seems to open it, like that balcony at the opening scene. SG
