“When will I access that significant?” Many runners have questioned them selves this query, but as actor and storyteller Christopher Rivas highlights in his limited film ‘Head On A Swivel,’ not all runners have equal entry to that experience for the duration of a run. The video clip offers the thoughts and thoughts of a person runner of color, as advised by means of Rivas’s internal narrative on an average jog: the anticipation of racial profiling, the stress of social interaction, and the concern of unjust retribution. “I made this piece in reaction to the killing of Ahmaud Arbery,” Rivas says. “I questioned if disappearing into a runner’s significant is at any time truly attainable when the body of color generally has to hold their head on a swivel.” Rivas’ monologue in the film issues which areas are secure and which “normal” functions are basically unsafe, but closes with a concept of persistence and defiance: he retains jogging.
