Run is running away... He has just killed his country’s Prime Minister. Therefore he had to take the face and clothes of a madman wandering throughout the town for months. His life returns to him in flashes: his childhood with master Tourou, when he dreamt of becoming a rainmaker, his incredible adventures with Greedy Gladys and his militia past as a Young Patriot in Ivory Coast’s political and military conflict. Run has not chosen all of these lives. He stumbled into them, escaping from one life to another. This is why he is called Run.
The latest political, military conflict in Ivory Coast has cost 3,000 lives. Run, observes a country in crisis, in an attempt to cast new light on its politics, using fiction to portray the last twenty years of the Ivory Coast through its history and geography, a vast story which encompasses its collective history through the iconic life of one individual: Run.

Born in 1971 in Abidjan, Philippe Lacôte grew up next to a movie theater. Run, which won the Jerusalem Film Lab Award, is Lacôte’s debut feature film. It was presented at the Un certain regard selection of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
