Discovery Life will broadcast the film about Juli Windsor, the first runner with dwarfism to complete the Boston Marathon on April 14th, 8pm EST. In 2013, like thousands of other runners, Juli was stopped at mile 25 when bombs were exploding at the finish line. She came back in 2014 to finish the race and made history.

BBC World will broadcast the film April 18th and 19th around the world. The film will also be part of the Boston Globe Docs series with a screening at the John F. Kennedy Library, Sunday, April 19th at 6pm. We expect many runners in the audience as the 2015 Boston Marathon is the next day!
As co-producer, I filmed many of the interviews and footage of Juli, first responders from the events of the 2013 marathon, scenes leading up to the 2014 Boston Marathon, runners along the course and at the finish line, and co-wrote the script for the feature length film.
