Anjali Nayar’s Gun Runners follows two Kenyan cattle rustlers, Julius Arile and Robert Matanda, who trade their rifles for running shoes to compete against the world’s best marathon runners. Filmed over a 10-year period in Kenya and New York City and told entirely by its main characters, Gun Runners takes us from life in the North Kenyan bush to the mean streets of the New York Marathon. A story about the American Dream, African-style, that’s sure to inspire amateur runners and armchair athletes alike.
