Metaphoric consideration of running a marathon you can’t afford to lose.

Synopsis

The companion film to its breakout counterpart BLACK BODIES, this stunning short provokes (metaphoric) consideration of running a marathon you can’t afford to lose. After dealing with a high-profile incident of racial bias in California this past year Kelly Fyffe-Marshall was compelled to turn to art for healing as a way to work through the trauma.

Through this process MARATHON was born, allegorically taking the the viewer on a journey of a black man through history  asking the question, what is it like to be Black in 2018? Teaming back up with cinematographer Jordan Oram (GOD'S PLAN, IN MY FEELINGS) the duo sought out to create a piece that was visually captivating, emotive, and honoured the endurance and power of people of colour to persevere.
