Screening: New Sports Documentary "Free to Run" [link] | Picture House, Pelham
Followed by an expert panel discussion with track & field visionaries Dr. Norbert Sander (of Hastings) and George Hirsch.
Today, all anybody needs to run is the determination and a pair of the right shoes. But just fifty years ago, running was viewed almost exclusively as the domain of elite male athletes who competed on tracks. With insight and propulsive energy, director Pierre Morath traces running's rise to the 1960s, in the new documentary Free to Run. The critically acclaimed film examines how the liberation movements and newfound sense of personal freedom that defined the era took the sport out of the stadiums and onto the streets, and how legends like Steve Prefontaine, Fred Lebow, and Kathrine Switzer redefined running as a populist phenomenon. After the screening, Clayton Bushong, Director of Programming, Marketing, and Operations at The Picture House will moderate a discussion with Dr. Norbert Sander, winner of the 1974 NYC Marathon and George Hirsch one of the NYC Marathon's founders and current chairman of New York Road Runners.
