SFA to screen 'The Barkley Marathons' race documentary tonight


SFA’s School of Art and the Friends of the Visual Arts will present a free, one-night screening of “The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young” at 7 p.m. tonight in The Cole Art Center @ The Old Opera House in downtown Nacogdoches.

The documentary, directed by Annika Iltis and Timothy James Kane, is about a race in Tennessee in which, during its first 25 years, only 10 people have finished.
