It is screening in the Krikorian Theatre in Monrovia, Los Angeles on the 21 August at 6.00pm.
Defining Moment is a fascinating case of one person, John O’Regan, against the elements. What are the ingredients that make an ultra runner go through such grueling mental and physical pain? How is an ultra runner different from a marathon runner?
Shot on location in Ireland, Greece, UK, French Alps, Sahara Desert, The North Pole, Antarctica and theYukon Territory, this intriguing documentary reveals what makes him tick using the background story of his participation in the 2010 “Spartathlon”. Four hundred and fifty of the world’s top ultra runners passed the stringent entry criteria for the 246km non-stop race, but just 128 crossed the finish line within the 36 hour limit.
