Other films on the lineup include the North American premiere of “25,000 Miles,” a film about Swiss endurance athlete Serge Roetheli’s thirst for adventure and desire to raise money and awareness for children suffering across the globe propelled him to run a distance equal to the earth’s circumference; and “Bullets over Brownsville,” described as a cautionary tale that chronicles the lives of four Brooklyn housing project residents caught in an absurd web of violence.”
