The trailer has just been released for a feature-length film about the Boston Marathon due out next year. “BOSTON,” produced by LA Roma Films, will tell the rich story of the Boston Marathon from its beginning in 1897 to the present day. The film will chronicle the growth, change, triumph and tragedy of the iconic race, demonstrating how it has both reflected and catalyzed social change.
Directed by Jon Dunham, the award-winning filmmaker of the critically acclaimed “Spirit of the Marathon” films, and produced by Academy Award nominee Megan Williams, “BOSTON” is the first feature film to be produced about the world’s oldest annually contested marathon. In January, it was announced that Olympic bronze medalist and American record-holder Deena Kastor joined the production as an executive producer.
