After a string of documentaries including "Am Limit" ("To the Limit") and "Joschka und Herr Fischer", director Pepe Danquart presents his first feature-length drama in ten years: "Lauf, Junge, lauf!" ("Run, Boy, Run!") is based on the acclaimed novel by Uri Olev, which chronicles the real-life story of a Holocaust survivor: In 1942, 9-year-old Srulik escapes from the Ghetto in Warsaw and is all on his own. For months, he survives in the woods by hunting small animals and sleeping in trees. But then the upcoming winter forces him to return to civilization where he can't be sure whom to trust. Following the advise of a farmer's wife, he learns to pass as a Catholic orphan and to evade his prosecutors. Yet still he is in constant fear of being caught. Pepe Danquart captures the madness of the time in gut-wrenching scenes while relating a brave child's fight for life and identity. At the same time, his film is a timeless reflection on the nature of man, our ability to do unspeakable evil while also being capable of showing unexpected compassion.
