Trailerama: Hood to Coast

With the exception of Pre, watching people run isn’t the most aesthetically fulfilling activity. There’s a lot of sweat … blood vessels … wobbling bits. The filmmakers behind Hood to Coast don’t explain why we should be interested in this relay race, which takes place every August and runs from Oregon’s Mount Hood to the ocean. Instead, they expect us to be interested in the quirky group of runners the event attracts. What results are a series of portraits of individuals who range from the irritating to the inspiring. For gym rats only. Directed by Christoph Baaden.
