About

This film will delve deep into how we all deal with the ravages of aging and coming to terms with the inevitable loss of physical ability.  The featured subjects of our film offer a window into the growing crowd of defiant mavericks who dedicate their lives to prolonging athletic prowess.  

Running a sub-four minute mile is an enormously difficult task for any individual and few have done it. This documentary raises the stakes as it follows a man on a journey to break the four minute mile as he turns forty years old. The achievement just might be the ultimate concession to mid-life crisis. Many aging poeple search for fast cars, others flashy items, but in this case each runner's own ability to race in overdrive is the payoff of eternal (or prolonged) vitality. This film will center on trailing our principal subject, Olympic athlete Anthony Famiglietti (Fam) on his journey to break the four minute mile as he turns forty in 2018/2019. Only three men have ever completed the task past forty, more men have walked on the moon.

We anticipate interviewing some of the greatest milers of all-time as well as many forty and over racers, marathoners, and ultra runners who are pushing the limits of human performance. We aim to take a brutally honest look at what it means to age in modern society within the era of social media, as well as inspire others to aim for greater well being and achievement. Despite some elements of serious subject matter and occasional climactic athletic pursuits, the overall goal will be a lighthearted film driven by self-effacing humor.

We plan to use all raised funds to finance production of the film including the cost filming, editing and post production.
