DocFest: 40 Below: The Toughest Race in the World
Join us for post-screening Q&A with director Marius Anderson!
It’s been called the toughest endurance race in the world… why would anyone do this, especially when it’s 40 degrees below zero? Set in Northern Minnesota, we meet Leah, a junk food eating scientist, and Bill, an accomplished ultra-marathoner who just can’t seem to finish this incredibly challenging race. They run, bike or ski 135 miles over three days in the solitary woods, sometimes hallucinating and barely stopping to rest or sleep in the snow without getting frostbite or freezing to death. What can we learn from them about life, love and happiness?
Presented as part of San Francisco Documentary Festival 2023.
