3100: Run and Become

What if the simple act of running could lead to profound enlightenment? 3100: Run and Become follows an unassuming Finnish paperboy in his attempt to complete the Self-Transcendence 3100 Miler – the world’s longest race – where he must run at least 60 miles per day for 52 days around a 1⁄2 mile sidewalk loop in New York City. His quest takes viewers not only to the heart of this astonishing event but around the globe to the ancient cultures that have held running sacred for millennia.

This feature length documentary is set to premiere in 2018. Visit the film’s site for more information.

The trailer will be released next year too, but in the meantime, here’s the teaser made for our successful Kickstarter campaign.

From Outside Magazine review:

It’s hard to show transcendence, especially the kind that comes from the devotional practice of moving your body, but that’s what director Sanjay Rawal was trying to capture as he filmed runners around the world. “My background is in mysticism and spirituality, so I’m interested in how running was their way to commune with the divine,” he says.

Brand new song by the legendary Roberta Flack debuts in 3100: Run and Become. Come see 3100 this weekend on at the Village East Cinema. Click on the link to play the YouTube music-hosted song. Text from Billboard feature:

"It was a string of coincidences that inspired Flack -- recently honored by the Jazz Foundation of America for her career achievements -- to record “Running.” She was a longtime devotee of the late Guru Sri Chinmoy, an Indian spiritual leader whose followers included Carlos Santana, Clarence Clemons, Narada Michael Walden and Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis. A proponent of meditation and physical exercise, the New York City-based Chinmoy was an avid runner and sponsor of the 3100 Mile Race in addition to being an author, poet and musician."

"Interviewer: 3100: Run & Become has a visual aesthetic that very much feels like a narrative film. Did you decide to shoot this documentary like a feature fiction?

Sean "Kirby: Yes, thank you for catching that. I stumbled into documentary filmmaking from narrative a while back and I did so shooting a documentary that is almost entirely shot as if it were a feature film. That approach has stuck with most of the documentary work that I've done.

"This film absolutely blew me away ...this documentary is still a remarkable achievement on many levels. Three years in the making, Sanjay Rawal has managed to capture the souls of his subjects in a way that is penetrating but never intrusive. And the concept of running has never been made so expansive."
