‘On the track, there is no black and white. Only fast and slow.’ That’s Jesse Owens talking about prejudice.

Owens went to the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin and tore a few pages from the record books – making Adolf Hitler’s perfect Aryan race look very imperfect.

Race is the story of how he did that. It opens on February 19th. Take a look behind the scenes in three new videos from Focus Features following the break.
