Woodstock Film Festival Presents Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing

Oct 10, 2016

April 15, 2013, Boston, Massachusetts--The winner of the marathon crossed the finish line hours ago, but Boylston Street remains vibrant as friends and families cheer a steady stream of runners coming down the final stretch. Suddenly the unthinkable happens...BOOM! BOOM! Two massive blasts instantaneously transform triumph to tragedy, killing four and leaving a blood-soaked trail of shrapnel and severed limbs in their wake.

Directors Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg focus not on the politics or sensationalism, but instead offer a patchwork of deeply moving portraits of the victims, struggling to move forward on prosthetic limbs and recreate their lives.

Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing will screen twice as part of the the Woodstock Film Festival
