Run Boy Run (Lauf Junge Lauf)

Run Boy Run

A cinematically epic, true story of the way in which one boy’s will to survive defined him and inspired others.

A superb film adaptation based on Uri Orlev’s 2004 novel about the survival of Yoram Friedman, featuring exceptional performances and stunning cinematography. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Pepe Danquart tells the remarkable true story of nine-year-old Srulik, who escaped the Warsaw ghetto in 1942 and learned to survive in the wilderness, until winter forced him to seek shelter. Then, after changing his name to Jurek, he passed himself off as a Christian orphan and survived the war under incredible circumstances while being hunted down by those who suspected his true identity.
