“Run”, the two souls of parkour – Simone Bartesaghi’s new film presented at MIFF
Simone Bartesaghi is an award-winning Italian filmmaker who in 2001 left a brilliant career as a manager to pursue his childhood dream. After two years he had already won several awards as writer and director of short films. The most important recognition, though, were the first and second place at MIFF, thanks to which he went to Los Angeles with a fellowship. Simone’s new film is the 3D action thriller “Run” that he wrote and directed. The film is the high-paced coming-of-age story of Daniel, a 17-year old pickpocket Parkour expert, who has spent his life on the run with his father. When Daniel uses his skills to make a heroic gesture, his father’s family and his sinister and mysterious past start coming back at them. In the cast Eric Roberts (“The Dark Knight”), Adrian Pasdar (“Heroes”), Kelsey Chow (“Pair of Kings”) e William Moseley (“Chronicles of Narnia”).
