Skid Row Marathon

USA, Feature Documentary, 2017, 85 min

Winner of Best Documentary and/or Audience at 11 film festivals

Judge Craig Mitchell is the definition of inspirational. By day he presides over a criminal court for Los Angeles County but, by early morning, he trades his judicial garb for tennis shoes and running shorts as he jogs the darkened streets of LA among the people who call Skid Row home. He starts a running club comprised of homeless addicts, a recovering single mom and a paroled murderer who consider themselves among those least likely to succeed. As they train together to run in international marathons, they learn to dream big.
