Skid Row Marathon

Skid Row Marathon

We are thrilled to be able to present Skid Row Marathon as our opening film! This award-winning film is an inspiring example of compassion in action.

Synopsis: When a criminal court judge starts a running club on LA’s notorious skid row and begins training a motley group of addicts and criminals to run marathons, lives begin to change.

SKID ROW MARATHON follows four runners as they rise from the mean streets of LA to run marathons around the world, fighting the pull of homelessness and addiction at every turn.

Their story is one of hope, friendship, and dignity.

Immediately after the film, we will be joined by the Producer Gabriele Hayes and Star Rafael Cabrera for a discussion and Q&A.
