Rickey Gates is a long-distance runner with an exploratory, curious mind. A couple years back, we covered his quest to run every street in San Francisco, a way for Gates to thoroughly learn about his community. But before he did that, Gates ran across the country, in 2016, as the election pushed down like a giant cleaver across the heart of the country. Now, as another election reveals a gulf even wider than when Gates ran, Salomon has released Transamericana, a full-length feature about Gates’ run. It’s a wonderful film. Check out the trailer above, and if it grabs ya, here’s the whole darn thing.
