The power, intensity and drama of desert ultramarathon racing is impressively conveyed in Jennifer Steinman’s documentary. Following a small group of runners competing in the 4 Deserts (the Atacama, the Gobi, the Sahara and the Antarctic) series of races, the film is a compelling look at what motivates these extraordinary competitors.
