Gun Runners at Margaret Mead Film Festival
October 21, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This remarkable story of two warriors is an urgent and inspiring reminder that cycles of violence can be broken with vision and willpower. Julius Arile and Robert Matanda were among the fiercest militiamen in Northern Kenya for years. As part of an ongoing initiative to disarm the conflict-ridden region, Arile and Matanda trade in their guns for sneakers and pursue the lifelong dream of becoming professional marathon runners.
