Episode Information“BOSTON” is the first 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 120 years ago, starting with only 15 runners, to the present day and showcases many of the most important moments in the history of the oldest annually contested marathon in the world. Evolving from a working man’s challenge to welcoming foreign athletes and eventually women, Boston is the stage for many firsts paving the way for the modern marathon and mass participatory sports. Following the tragic events of 2013, the film records the preparations and eventual running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later in what would become the most meaningful race of all time. Directed by award winning filmmaker Jon Dunham and produced by Academy Award nominee Megan Williams and executive produced by Academy Award nominee Frank Marshall, “BOSTON” is accompanied by composer Jeff Beal’s original score recorded by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and narrated by Academy Award winner and Boston native Matt Damon.
