Boston Marathon Film Boston - The Documentary "BOSTON is the first ever feature-length documentary film about the world’s most legendary running
race – the Boston Marathon. The film chronicles the story of the iconic race from its humble origins
starting with only 15 runners to the present day. In addition to highlighting the event as the oldest
annually contested marathon in the world, the film showcases many of the most important moments in more
than a century of the race’s history. Evolving from a working man’s challenge to welcoming foreign athletes
and eventually women, Boston becomes the stage for many firsts and in no small part the event that paved
the way for the modern marathon and mass participatory sports."
Featuring Joan Benoit Samuelson, Bill Rodgers, Amby Burfoot, Wilson Chebet, Rob de Castella, Shalane Flanagan, Jack Fultz,
Jaqueline Gareau, Bobbi Gibb, Ibrahim Hussein, Dave McGillivray, Greg Meyer, Rosa Mota, Toshihiko Seko, Frank Shorter,
Geoff Smith, Katherine Switzer. Music played by the Boston Symphony.
One day only - April 19th, at the Hampshire Mall Hadley MA, Crossgates Mall Albany NY,
