Thanks to Christy Cuomo and Dean Leggiero. Christy wrote the film and Dean directed and edited it. We had around 100 people turn out for the premiere at the Phelps Memorial Hospital auditorium on Sunday, April 1st.
Danny Martin introduced a short video tribute to our friend Micah True (aka Caballo Blanco) who died while running a favorite trail in New Mexico earlier in the week. Danny urged everyone to connect and celebrate our belonging in the world. Christy read her beautiful tribute to Micah.
Afterwards we viewed the movie which told the story of the genesis of the Leatherman’s Loop and how it has come to last 25+ years. Runners and organizers were interviewed, stories were told, secrets revealed. The story of the Old Leather Man was recapped. Throughout the film, footage from the 25th running of the Loop in May 2011 was interspersed with narratives and tales.
After this year’s Loop on April 22nd, we are hoping to have a second showing of the film at another venue to be announced soon.
