Run

Short Film (Full Length) – 2007

M
Mature

Run tells the tale of a Samoan brother and sister pushed by their over-protective father into pounding the pavement and music lessons. The siblings conspire together to overcome their father's wrath and show him that he may be their biggest obstacle. Like follow-up short The Six Dollar Fifty Man it was inspired by the filmmakers' (Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland) experiences growing up on the Kapiti Coast. Sutherland plays a role close to home: the father. Run won best short and screenplay at the 2007 NZ Screen Awards and was Palme d'Or runner-up at Cannes.  

 

Small people uniting to gain strength is an easy thing to identify with in any culture.
– Sutherland on the secret to Run’s Cannes success, in a 2007 Onfilm interview
