A Long Way From Nowhere is a documentary about athletes that go the extra mile…er um… 150 miles. Ever hear of ultra-marathoners? (Who are those people, amirite?) Well, I went to high school with one of these gluttons for punishment, and he’s coming back to our home town in Reading, PA as the subject of a fascinating documentary about his “hobby” this Saturday. It’s called A Long Way From Nowhere, and it follows a particularly grueling 150 mile race in the desert. Not only the desert. The desert… in the height of summer… during the day. The film gives an in-depth look at the race itself, but also a personal look at the individuals involved. The participants who are just bonkers enough to run it. Participants like Phil Pinti.
