Boston: The Documentary (Film)

+ More Info

Special Marathon Weekend Event:
Join us for a screening of "BOSTON" the documentary with a special Q&A after the film with filmmaker Jon Dunham and executive producer Tom Derderian. 

Tickets: $12 per person. $10 for students/seniors. Buy here.

BOSTON, narrated by Matt Damon, 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. The Boston Athletic Association granted exclusive documentary rights to BOSTON producers as well as use of the Association's extensive archive of video, photos, and memorabilia. The film 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.

BOSTON immerses the viewer into the world of the marathon – the only sport in which an everyday athlete can participate alongside the best in the world – to experience the preparation, competition and camaraderie of the runners and the loyal dedication and support of the spectators. Recounting the history of Boston champions such as Johnny Kelley – who ran the marathon through eight decades; and Stylianos Kyriakides – who won in 1946 to raise money for food, supplies and other relief for his home nation, Greece; and following modern athletes such as Olympic medalist Shalane Flanagan, BOSTON connects the history of the marathon and its runners with the 2014 race in an inspiring telling of heroism, friendship, dedication, and bravery.

Following the tragic events of 2013, BOSTON records the preparations and eventual running of the 118th Boston Marathon one year later when runners and the community gather once again in support of one another for what would be the most meaningful race of all. Runners and spectators join together, “Boston Strong,” to overcome the fear of the terrible, exhibiting the best of the human spirit. Accompanied by Jeff Beal’s original score and narrated by Boston native Matt Damon, BOSTON imparts an emotional journey into the wondrous kaleidoscope of the marathon, a microcosm of the ability of humans of all ages, genders and races to be unified by a single event.

BOSTON premiered on April 15, 2017
 

"The Boston Marathon is like no other event in the world, and to have its history captured through this type of exclusive documentary is extraordinary." - Mayor Marty Walsh, The Boston Globe

Jon Dunham (producer, director, cinematographer) is an award winning filmmaker and a 25-time marathon finisher. The fusion of both these passions is reflected in his Spirit of the Marathon films.

Premiering at the 2007 Chicago International Film Festival, Spirit of the Marathon won the coveted Audience Award. It was subsequently released in more than 400 cinemas across the United States, where it grossed over $1 Million in two days on its way to becoming one of the year’s most successful theatrically released documentary films. The critically acclaimed production, which has become a cult classic among runners, was followed by Spirit of the Marathon II in 2013.

BOSTON is the filmmaker’s third and final film on the subject and marks the first time in the legendary race’s history that the complete story will be told in a feature-length film.

As a cinematographer, Dunham has lensed a wide range of documentaries and has filmed on every continent.

Executive Producer Tom Derderian will be joining us for the screening as well. He’s the world’s foremost expert on the history of the Boston Marathon an accomplished runner and coach of the Greater Boston Track Club.
