Caballo Blanco AKA Micah True is the enigmatic character and now trail running legend at the heart of the Chris MacDougall’s best-selling book “Born to Run”.
Caballo was a man who finally found a home and a peave among the Tarahumara tribe in northern Mexico and through sheer determination set about creating up a legacy using the running he loved to provide food and money to winners of his annual ultra.
This feature length documentary is directed by Sterling Noren, a filmmaker from Seattle, who met Micah True in 2009. Most of the material for the film was recorded in the weeks leading up to the 2012 ultra marathon and includes interviews with the running legend and his interactions with the Tarahumara.
Shortly after the race, Micah True disappeared in the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico. After four days of searching, his body was found and recovered.
He died doing what he loved most – running.
“Micah’s vision lives on and his legacy will be honored in this film.” said Noren.
