BOSTON The Documentary
In support of the Anchorage RunFest, the Bear Tooth Presents:
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.
Following the tragic events of 2013, BOSTON records the preparations and eventual running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later when runners and community gather once again in support of one another for what will be the most meaningful race of all.
Produced and directed by award winning filmmaker/marathoner Jon Dunham (Spirit of the Marathon I & II) and produced by Academy Award nominee Megan Williams, and executive produced by Academy Award nominee Frank Marshall (Back to the Future, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Sully), BOSTON is more than a running film. It is a timeless story about triumph over adversity for runner and non-runner alike.
