Join GlobeDocs for a screening of “Undaunted: Chasing History at the Boston Marathon.”At 2:49 p.m. on April 15, 2013, Juli Windsor was less than a mile away from completing a lifelong quest to become the first runner with dwarfism to finish the Boston Marathon, a grueling feat that required twice the steps of other runners. The bombings in Boston that day transformed her triumph into horror. Juli and thousands of other runners were turned back before crossing the finish line. She vowed to run again the next year. It would be a chance at redemption as much as making history.

 

“Undaunted: Chasing History at the Boston Marathon” is a film about the comeback of one unique runner, a 3-foot-9 physician assistant who has been mistaken for a runaway child while training. It’s also about a city rallying against terror. Thousands of runners returned to compete, while a million spectators came back to cheer despite their fear. Many more around the world admired a city that wouldn’t be intimidated by an attack that left hundreds wounded and three dead. “Undaunted” is also a film about every runner’s fantasy: For the first half of the 2014 race, to the astonishment and sustained applause of thousands along the course, Juli led the pack.

 

Discussion and Q&A to follow featuring Juli Windsor, star of the film, filmmakers Lorie Conway and Andy Laub, and producer and award-winning Boston Globe reporter David Abel.
