Two documentaries open at the Magic Lantern today:
“When I Walk” by Jason DaSilva about his life with multiple sclerosis.
James Greenberg of the Hollywood Reporter said of the film: “Skilled direction and an indomitable spirit make a filmmaker’s personal journey with multiple sclerosis inspiring without being maudlin.”
“Desert Runners” follows a group that competes in four ultramarathons in four deserts – the Atacama in Chile, the Gobi in China, the Sahara in Egypt and Antarctica – in one year.
The competitors travel 155 miles – just 150 in Antarctica – over six days through the driest, hottest, windiest and coldest places on Earth. And, they carry everything the need.
You’ll just have to carry the popcorn.
