Narrated by Academy Award® winner Matt Damon, BOSTON: An American Running Story tells the story of the oldest annually-contested marathon from its humble origin of 15 runners to the present day(View Trailer). Evolving from a working man’s challenge to welcoming foreign athletes and eventually women, the Boston Marathon is the stage for many firsts and helped pave the way for the modern marathon.
Following the tragic events of 2013, BOSTON records the preparations and running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later, when runners and community gather in support of one another for what will be the most meaningful race of all.
BOSTON is more than a running documentary, it is a timeless story about triumph over adversity for runner and non-runner alike.
This one-night event features footage of the Boston Symphony Orchestra recording an original score composed by 4X Emmy Award®-winner Jeff Beal (House of Cards). LA Roma Films is proud to partner with John Hancock Financial, The Kennedy/Marshall Company and The Boston Athletic Association to present BOSTON: An American Running Story.
Film will be shown in Theaters nationwide on April 19. Visit Fathom Events for local theater near you.
