In December 2009, New Zealander Mal Law made history by becoming the first person ever to run NZ's 7 mainland Great Walks in just 7 days - a total distance of 360 kms in the longest week of his life. It was an adventure to honor the memory of his brother Alan, who died as a teenager from leukemia. In completing the 7in7 Mal raised more than $85,000 for the Leukemia & Blood Foundation of NZ and so helped make a huge difference to people suffering from this cruel illness. Mal Law Quote: "I suspect that the experience of losing my 'big bro' when I was just 9 years old has had quite an impact on my life. It's difficult to imagine that it hasn't shaped the person I am today - for better or worse - in some way or other. Perhaps this is what gives me the fight to take on big challenges? Who knows?" "No matter. Alan, this one is for you bro'Written by
"For Alan" is a documentary of a man who is full of passion and great determination. The directing was brilliant! Dimi Nakov is a young director you will want to keep your eye on, as you will understand once you view this great piece of film. In my opinion this documentary deserves an award, as do the director, editor and all involved. This film capitalizes on the fact that at some time or another in our lives we as individuals must take a stand - reach out and find the strength in ourselves for the great of making other lives better. This film is a dedication to a young man by the name of Malcolm Law and proves just how deep a brother's love really runs.
