Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
Its such a shame that the project is not funded :( I was really looking forward to the study, results, and the final movie. Can we reach out to Runners World to help us promote this story ? Can other folks blog/tweet about it ? Can it be shared more actively on facebook ? Its not that big an amount and we should be able to reach it. How can we help ?
Konstanz I agree...this project is not for the faint of heart. Tara has proven her gift for getting to the heart of every video she creates. This one will be powerful beyond measure on so many levels. Thank you for your courage, artistic ability and strength Tara, and thank you all my fellow backers. Let's share this project with everyone we know. Something very special and powerful will emerge from this video.
Greetings fellow Kickstarters! I just wanted to put a quick word in here to convey my deep respect for someone who is willing to go out on a limb to follow her dream of telling an unknown story for the rest of the world to hear in the hopes that we all can gain a little wisdom from a much over-looked people whose voice has yet to be heard. Venturing into primitive areas like this is not a journey for the faint of heart. So hats off to you, Tara! You are an inspiration and a role model for what one person can do equipped with little more than sheer determination and a will to follow their dream. This is a co-creation story . . . and TOGETHER WE CAN!
Good luck Tara. I hope that you find enough funding for this inspiring project. I have always been in awe of the Tarahumara, and I'm sure that you will do their story justice. Thank you for the support of my project, I am glad to return the favor.
Hitchhiking in the late 60's thru Mexico was quite an experience. One of the places I traveled thru was the Copper Canyon, Mexico. This incredibly beautiful land was so different from the trek along the Sea of Cortez. And then, who were these colorful beautiful Indians I am seeing for the first time. The Tarahumaras. Now in the present time my dear friend is taking on the filming documentary of the Tarahumara's Ultra-Marathon. Tara Golden is so incredibly creative with her filming, and she is so on fire in doing the documentary of these incredible runners. I support this documentary and know you will fall in love with this film too!
