dir. Eli Rudovsky, USA , 2023, 9min
Set in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, a Jewish and Eastern European neighborhood where my family has roots, “Runaway” is a short fiction film that tells the story of a teenager and his estranged father. The idea for the film emerged from a deep interest in relationships between fathers and sons—in the wisdom that's shared, and in the secrets that are kept across generations. Writer, director, and editor: Eli Rudavsky. AFTER THE SCREENING MEETING WITH FILMMAKER!
