Los Angeles, CA, United States
Skid Row Marathon is a feature length documentary that follows Judge Craig Mitchell and his running club as they prepare for a variety of running events including the Accra International Marathon in Ghana, the LA Marathon and the Rome Marathon. Many of the club members have been living on the streets or in homeless shelters for significant periods of time. They’ve lost everything - their homes, their jobs, their families and relationships. As they run with the Judge, they struggle with their demons and attempt to regain their self-esteem and self-sufficiency. Not everyone succeeds.
Skid Row Marathon will be screening at the 2017 LA Film Festival on June 17 at the Arclight Santa Monica 8.
