Directing Instructor Simone Bartesaghi Wins Best Screenplay at Milan Internation
Congratulations to our Directing Instructor Simone Bartesaghi for winning Best Screenplay at the Milan International Film Festival (MIFF) for the movie he wrote and directed RUN.
RUN is a fast paced, coming-of-age crime thriller, about seventeen year old, street smart Daniel who is self taught, and unknowingly adept at Parkour, a physical discipline of training to overcome any obstacle within one’s path by adapting one’s movements to the environment.
Under the guidance of his tough loving, yet misguided father, Mike, Daniel utilizes his incredible athletic skills to become an agile young thief as they move from city to city. After a close call with the Detroit police, Mike decides to return to New York City in the hopes of settling a sixteen year old dispute and proving his innocence with the crime family where he met Daniel’s now deceased mother.
Daniel yearns for his nomadic lifestyle to end and finds himself bonding with Mark and a group of freerunners who introduce a name to his secret skill set. He instantly falls for Mark’s sister Emily who reveals secrets of her own and they both learn the importance of trust.
When Mike’s truce with the head of the crime family doesn’t quite go as planned, Daniel must utilize all his skills to fight for the life and freedom of not only him and his father, but also Mark and Emily when they unexpectedly get pulled into the dispute.
