Synopsis: What happens when a diverse handful of rebels across the globe co-opts a sport that was long the dominion of yuppies? The answer is at the heart of THE MOVEMENT, an irreverent, music-driven story about the new revolutions in running. In recent years, underrepresented communities have been transforming the sport of running into something beyond the realms of fitness and competition. Running today is a lifestyle, an identity, a raised fist, and a force to blast through social constructs. In cities from London to Tokyo, misfits, punks, and others far outside the mainstream athlete mold have been gathering into run crews that take to the streets in defiance. Trail running is undergoing its own takeover as women lead the charge to run further and freer than ever before. THE MOVEMENT is a high-energy ride that carries us through the intersection of running and culture today, with a look toward where it’s going tomorrow.
