HA NOI (VNS) — Director Pepe Danquart will come to Viet Nam to screen his film, Run Boy, Run, in Ha Noi and HCM City this weekend.
The Academy Award winning director, whose work focuses on German society, sports and politics, comes at the Viet Nam Cinematography Association's invite.
Run Boy, Run, an adaptation of Uri Orlev's novel, tells the true story of an eight year old refugee who escapes from a Warsaw ghetto during the WWII German occupation. Along the way the boy is forced to rely on the goodwill of the people he meets in a battle-torn countryside.
The film will air at 7pm in German with Vietnamese and English subtitles. After the screenings, there will be question-and-answer sessions with the director. — VNS
