Prior to his passing, fashion designer and entrepreneur Virgil Abloh founded Architecture Films. One of his many projects included a mini-documentary on the crazy life of track star Sha’Carri Richardson.
Sub Eleven Seconds runs through Sha’Carri Richardson’s wild 2021 that included her ascent to prominence as one of the best track stars in the U.S., her grandmother’s death, her suspension from the Olympics due to marijuana use, and more.
“Sub Eleven Seconds is a poetic imagining of the quest of Sha’Carri Richardson, a young track & field athlete, to achieve her dream of qualifying for the Olympic Games. Sprinting the 100-meter dash is one of the most expressive feats a human being can attempt; what is it like to spend years of one’s life dedicated to clocking the shortest conceivable time? A rumination on time, loss, and hope, Sub Eleven Seconds distills the proverbial “10,000 hours” along Sha’Carri’s path to master her craft as she seeks to run the 100-meter dash in under 11 seconds on the world’s stage.”

The documentary premiered this week at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. However, we are unsure when it will be available to the public.
