Finish Line (Documentary), Saturday, 27.01.2018, 10:30 pm

Direction: Eliana Abravanel

Greece, 2016, 70min, OmeU

In the midst of political change and crippling financial instability, three dedicated marathon runners have somehow managed to nab that perfect pace that renders the finish line irrelevant.

Idomeneas is a robust 65-year-old Cretan who runs the Athens Classic Marathon wearing a full suit of armor and no shoes.

At 69, Andonis is an old-school shepherd who discovered his talent for long-distance running after he accidentally outran a wolf, who had snatched one of his lambs.

Stelios is 85 years old and he’s the oldest active marathon runner in Greece.
