Skid Row Marathon is the uplifting and inspiring story of an unlikely group of individuals from LA's Skid Row, who receive a second chance at life, all brought on by a simple act of kindness.

Follow the story of High Court Judge, Craig Mitchell as he coaches a long-distance running club from the Midnight Mission on Skid Row. Using the redemptive power of running and the camaraderie of the group, marathon training raises the spirits of Skid Row's inhabitants and gives a sense of purpose to a group of people who are homeless, addicted or coming out of the prison system.

As the Judge says in the film, "One horrendous act does not define a person in his entirety" highlighting the transformation of homeless and often helpless individuals into sober, rounded and functioning members of society.

“Teatro alla Scala. The Temple of Wonders” is a documentary dedicated to the place par excellence where art is created and performed, and where it lives and breathes. It is the story of the only theatre in the world which has captured and tied indissolubly to it the all time greatest names in the history of music. Giuseppe Verdi, Arturo Toscanini, Maria Callas and Luchino Visconti turned this place into a legend and it still evokes a sense of the sacred to this day, handed down through the years by Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado, Giorgio Strehler, Riccardo Muti, Franco Zeffirelli, Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Chailly, Patrice Chéreau. Narrated by an off-screen voice. (in the Italian version it belongs to the actor Sandro Lombardi), the film takes us by the hand and leads us through centuries of history, focusing primarily on the Scala but at the same time recounting the main historical, musical, social and political events happening in Italy and the rest of Europe. It is as though there were three types of narrative, starting from the birth of the Theatre, and progressing in a perfectly synchronized manner as the story unfolds. The story is enriched by statements and commentary from musicians, experts and aficionados, and also features photographs, drawings, musical scores, paintings, images, videos from archive material and everything that serves to make it fluid, rich, clear and exhaustive account.
