“The 25,000 Mile Love Story” — a documentary about Swiss endurance athlete Serge Roetheli and his amazing run around the world with his wife, Nicole, to raise money for impoverished children — will have its Chicago premiere Sunday at the Gene Siskel Film Center.

Roetheli and the film’s director, John Davies, will be on hand for the special event.

Davies began his career in Chicago at WTTW-Channel 11, eventually becoming a producer of “Sneak Previews” with Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel, before moving on to TV and film producing in Hollywood.
