A short film by Matan Rochlitz & Ivo Gormley
Pounding the tarmac through the seasons, a band of runners are brazenly challenged with intimate questions as they pace their routes. Liberated from responsibilities, their guards drop dramatically, releasing funny and brutally frank confessions, and weaving a powerful narrative behind the anonymous masses.

Tangerine was the top short selected by Roman Coppola for his one minute film competition.
"This film is so unique. It is a total reflection of the filmmaker’s personality. Despite its short length, it had an appealing free-form and poetic quality. There is one particularly great, sexy moment – so provocative – but tasteful. I love the section which used jump cuts and also the subliminal shots of fruit so cleverly integrated. This whole movie feels like a scene in a longer film which I can’t wait to see”

Magnum photographer René Burri has died aged 81. Burri — who began working with Magnum as an associate in 1955 before becoming a full member in 1959 — is best known for his portraits of Che Guevara, Picasso and Le Corbusier.
“Not only was he one of the great post war photographers, he was also one of the most generous people I have had the privilege to meet,” Martin Parr, President of Magnum Photos said in a statement. “[His] contribution to Magnum and his unrivalled ability to tell stories and entertain us over this time will be part of his enormous legacy. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to his family.”
“With René Burri, the world of photography loses one of its most powerful artists, a true humanist, who skillfully documented from behind-the-scenes the suffering and joy of human kind,” Burri’s family added in a separate statement.
Born in Zurich in 1933, he was a contributor to publications such as LIFE,The New York Times andParis-Match, and traveled frequently throughout his career, filing dispatches from the Middle East, Europe and Latin America. In 1965, he helped create Magnum Films and afterward spent six months in China where he made the BBC-produced film The Two Faces of China.
In 1962, he opened the Magnum Gallery in Paris and produced drawings and collages, while continuing to work as a photographer.
“A photograph is a moment,” Burri said in a 2010 interview with The Guardian “when you press the button, it will never come back.”
