Runaway, the NFB-produced animated short film, will run before our Screenings of Cooper's Camera , Finding Farley, and David Francey: Burning Bright

Cordell Barker, who directed The Cat Came Back and Strange Invaders , is once again at his best with Runaway. Set to the music of Ben Charest (composer of The Triplets of Belleville ), Runaway takes you on a journey that is both funny and disastrous. Happy passengers are having a great time on a crowded train, oblivious to the unknown fate that awaits them around the bend. The ensuing crisis leads to a class struggle that is as amusing as it is merciless. Naturally there are victims, but in the end everyone is equal.

Director: Cordell Barker
Studio: National Film Board of Canada
