IFC 2014: Lives in a Landscape: The Longest Walk

bbc
Walking 100 miles (161 kilometers) is a incredibly tough. Interviewing the long distance walker George Foot (76) on his probably last long distance walk, mic in hand and walking backwards, is almost as hard. Alan Dein and Jolyon Jenkins (UK) did it, and their piece Lives in a Landscape: The Longest Walk is a portrait of a man walking from checkpoint to checkpoint towards the end of his life, still struggling against the shadows of a dominating father, a reflection on success and failure, on matters of life and death.
