ABOUT THE FILM:

Inspired by his own childhood, Amir Naderi’s THE RUNNER follows an illiterate 11-year-old orphan (Madjid Niroumand) as he fights, survives, and runs throughout the Iranian port city of Abadan. Cited as the beginning of the post-revolutionary Iranian New Wave, the film delivers remarkable photographic compositions and one of the finest performances by a young actor.
