This is a video about intersections. It combines the passions of the two directors Simon Straetker and Milo Zanecchia: trail running and filmmaking. There’s a tension between having a plan and trying something new, between traveling to a new place and doing something familiar. Inside this tension there’s a kind of beauty, the beauty of getting lost near Jebel Shams canyon in a beat up rental car, or taking a taxi out into the desert to be left alone for the night, with only the driver’s word that he’d come back to pick us up. We had a plan for the trip but allowed ourselves to get lost. Just as that’s a way to travel, it’s a way to experiencing filmmaking and running as well.
