From Truffaut's "The 400 Blows" to "Forrest Gump", film history has given us unforgettable running scenes.

Halfway between a video-clip and a video-essay, "Run Cinema Run" links together about thirty running scenes, with the aim to suggest associations and continuity between them, as they were a metaphor of the growth and human life.
