Lauf, Junge, lauf
For our very first Film of the Month we have a true gem: the winner of this year's Youth 4 German Cinema Award “Run, Boy, Run” from Oscar winner Pepe Danquart. It tells the true story of the Jewish boy Srulik, who in 1942 narrowly escapes from the Warsaw ghetto. Driven by an unshakable will to survive, Srulik makes his way alone through occupied Poland. He meets people he can trust and people who betray him. It's the story of a courageous young boy who never give up hope.
