Sometimes We Need a Little RUNNING TO THE SKY in this Developed World

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

For what it’s worth, while RUNNING TO THE SKY from Kyrgyzstan might not have superheroes or heavy VFX so crucial in today’s big tentpoles, there’s a beauty to this film that speaks to the essence of being human.

 

Directed by Mirlan Abdykalykov and originally titled JO KULUK, RUNNING TO THE SKY will have a showing at the Busan Film Festival coming up Oct. 3 - 12.

This film is so fresh and 'au naturel' it is a spiritual experience, or at least a palette cleanser from everyday cinematic fast-flash fare. And it features a chicken (okay, rooster) in a major role, just saying.

Okay, that sounds very woo-woo, but watch the trailer and see if you feel it too…

 

(You may be redirected to Vimeo, but you'll get to see it with a little patience, as it is still being editied.)

 

PLUTO Films Says

An exceptional runner, 12-year-old Kyrgyz boy Jekshen finds freedom from limitations by running competitions and relief from family burdens by winning prizes.
