After a week of filming in the Bahamas – we’re finally up!
Check the trailer and us out on kickstarter:
Mangold’s Challenge is running the race. Our Challenge is figuring out how to make sharing this story a possibility! What makes this so difficult?
Our pressing Timeline/ Itinerary:
Feb.6-Feb. 9th, 2012: Shoot Zandy running a practice race in the Bahamas and film Zandy’s family and father Tomas – a WWII Jewish refugee who once worked in the desert mines of northern Chile. Tomas will be returning for the first time in over 25 years to northern Chile to support his son at the end of the race and reconnect with a land he once knew.
Feb. 27, 2012– Fly down to Calama Airport, Chile a few days before the race. Adjust to the altitude, head to San Pedro, begin filming.
March 4-11, 2012 – 7 days of running and filming through the driest desert of the world!
March 12 – 15, 2012 – RECOVER
March 15, 2012 – Begin Edit
Why not shoot next year? This is a time dependant story based on the course of an individuals life in motion. As we all know – a documentary is about capturing the story of THE moment – thus we’re in a time crunch! Please help support the cause.
“The course of the Atacama Crossing follows a wide variety of terrains and includes approximately 3,500 meters of ascents and descents over the 7-day race.
Starting at above 3,000 meters in the Arcoiris Valley, the race gradually descends over the six stages to finish in the pretty town of San Pedro de Atacama at an elevation of 2,400 meters.
Mangold, will tackle sand-dunes, river crossings, gravel, loose rocks, hard packed earth and even waist high grass during the event. This is in addition to the infamous salt flats that even the most dexterous of runners find nearly impossible to cross at full-speed.” – Racing the Planet
