The filmmakers spent the last three years recording interviews with champions and amateur runners from around the world, as well as the stories of members of the Boston Marathon communities. The production was granted exclusive documentary rights from the Boston Athletic Association to produce the film and to use the Association’s extensive archive of video, photos and memorabilia.
The “BOSTON” World Premiere, presented by John Hancock Financial and The Boston Athletic Association, will take place in Boston April 15, 2017. Emmy Award® winner Jeff Beal (“House of Cards”) will conduct a live performance of his original “BOSTON” score by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra during the screening. The special performance of the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra is underwritten by Owsley Brown Presents, in partnership with Worth Miller Productions.
