Filmmakers Interview Runners On The Road

They thought asking questions during exercise would lead to better answers.

Filmmakers Matan Rochlitz and Ivo Gormley are out to do something different: try to get people to open up by speaking with them while they are running.

The pair has created a short film called The Runners.

“We were trying to understand what goes on in the minds of runners as they charge through the streets,” writes Gormley on The Guardian’s website. “What does it do to them and what can we find out about ourselves by interrupting them at this moment of vulnerability and clarity?”

Rochlitz came up with the idea, thinking that people might be more open if they were asked questions while on the run and that the interviewers could ask things that you couldn’t otherwise.

Gormley admits that pulling this off was hardly simple. They didn’t want to film while running and decided to pull a specially made trailer using a bicycle.
