The story of Guor Marial -- the South Sudanese runner who competed as an independent athlete at last summer's Olympic Games in London -- is nothing short of amazing. So it's easy to see why Guor's journey caught the eye of Bill Gallagher, a film producer.
Now on the heels of a successful Kickstarter campaign, Bill along with Tom Law, an associate editor of the Sudan Tribune, are creating a documentary about Guor's burgeoning running career that will include a visit back to Guor's home in South Sudan -- a country he has not visited in 20 years.
In the interview, Bill and Tom discuss their project and examine the perspectives they bring to the creation of this film.
