Running the Sahara Reviews
While "Running the Sahara" focuses on the runners and their personalities, I was left wondering at the end about the differences between running on different surfaces, especially sand. At the same time, that leaves little room for interaction with native peoples or sightseeing. Even then, the documentary still manages to capture some memorable images of the region. It should be noted that this was before the Arab Spring(getting into Libya is a whole struggle in and of itself), so things might be different now, but what never changes is the hard lives of the peoples living in the desert which the filmmakers seek to help by building wells.
