Rescued from poverty by Biranchi Das, a larger-than-life coach and operator of an orphanage in eastern Indian, four-year-old Budhia displays an uncommon talent for long-distance running. At once a folk hero and a symbol of exploitation, Budhia's life becomes swept up in a maelstrom of media controversy and political scandal.

Fourth Annual Canadian Sport Film Festival to take place June 7-8

The fourth annual Canadian Sport Film Festival (CSFF) will feature 12 films from around the world. Headlining the CSFF, taking place June 7-8 in Toronto at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, are the opening night film, Africa United, a heartwarming tale of three kids' desire to attend the World Cup; while the closing night film, Men Who Swim, is an award-winning documentary about men's synchronized swimming.
