SynopsisRun is a 2014 French-Ivorian drama film directed by Philippe Lacôte. It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.The fictionalized account of the 2011 post-election upheaval in the Ivory Coast that killed 3,000 people was the first film from that country selected for Cannes.
Run just killed the Prime Minister of his country. In order to do so, he had to act as if he was a crazy man, wandering through the city. His life comes back in flashes: his childhood with Tourou when his dream was to become a rain miracle-worker; his adventures with Gladys the eater; and his past as a young member of militia, in the heart of the political and military conflict in Ivory Coast. All those lives, Run didn't choose them.
