Movie Screening 26.2 To Life

Founders Room
Wed May 22, 2024
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Come see this award-winning documentary feature film about redemption and running 105 laps around the prison yard in San Quentin to equal a marathon, 26.2 miles.

Join your community and friends in the Founder’s Room for this impactful movie screening as part of our broader celebration of the library art gallery show - Recapturing Humanity Through the San Quentin Art Program.

Free popcorn and sodas will be available!

“26.2 to Life” tells the story of incarcerated men who are members of the 1000 Mile Club, the prison’s long-distance running club that train all year for this 26.2 mile race.

For the men who take their places at the starting line on a cool, sunny November morning, completing the marathon means more than entrée into an elite group of athletes. It’s a chance to be defined by more than their crimes.

“26.2 to Life” is a story of transformation and second chances and offers a rare glimpse into a world out of bounds, as the men navigating life sentences seek redemption and freedom… or something like it.

“26.2 to Life” is directed by Christine Yoo and produced by Film Hālau, Fifth Man Productions, and Stoopball, LLC in partnership with ESPN Films.
