Speed Cinema Presents: Free to Run

September 10, 2016 at 7:00 pm - 8:40 pm

Directed by Pierre Morath

“A joyous and inspirational film.”—Edward Douglas, Film Journal International

Running, once an activity reserved uniquely for men and confined to stadiums with strict rules, has changed considerably within the last fifty years. This documentary reveals the push for gender diversity within the sport and the cultural shifts to democratize the sport internationally.

With American Katherine Switzer causing scandal by infiltrating the Boston Marathon in 1967, the world began to see how sexist the sport had become. This led to an invitation to run in a race in Switzerland, opening the sport to women internationally. 2015, Belgium, DCP, 100 minutes.

This film is screened in conjunction with the opening weekend of the special exhibition Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture.

$7 for Members / $9 for Non-Members
