À toute épreuve
Marilyn Watelet, Szymon Zaleski
2004 - 52 min - 16 mm - Couleur - France, Belgique

The Kenyan long-distance runners arrive every year, at the beginning of the season.
They have come to run for their living, by winning amateur meets one weekend after another.
A race against time - while the tourist visa lasts, they can earn enough to provide for their families for 4 to 6 months.
We followed a team of Kenyans as they jogged through northern France and Belgium, through the hard-won victories and the injuries that could put a stop to racing for the season.
They introduced us to a strange little world where some race for fun and health, and others run for a living - run to exhaustion with only one thing in mind: earning the modest prizes offered.
A North-South encounters off the beaten track.
