Director Jerry Rothwell and producer Dan Demissie talk to FILMCLUB reporter Matt about their film Town of Runners - an inspirational sports documentary, which explores how a tiny Ethiopian town Bekoji has produced eight Olympic gold-medalists.

Jerry and Dan tell us why it is important to them that young people engage with their film, and that the media's occasionally negative perceptions of Ethiopia are tested. Jerry also reveals his favourite filmmakers, whilst Daniel tells us how he managed to balance his producer role with his film school studies.
