Run As One – The Journey of the Front Runners
Short Film (< 75 mins)
Directed by Erica Daniels
Ten young Indigenous athletes from First Nations across Manitoba were selected to run the Pan Am torch from Minneapolis to Winnipeg in 1967. But just before the athletes arrived at the opening ceremonies, the torch was taken from them and handed to a non-Indigenous athlete, who carried the torch into the stadium. Fifty years later the runners reunite to share their memories.
