“Runner” is a film about love and freedom. Director is interested in how these two topics interpenetrate, and how they come from responsibility and self-sacrifice for other topics. Due to the aggressive foreign policy of Russia, the conflicts of Soviet and modern thinking in Lithuania, in director’s opinion, the topic of personal freedom is as never before relevant. Due to the still stereotypical stereotyped attitude in Lithuania that a woman is a “weaker gender”, the choice of a woman as the main character in the movie about freedom is necessary. Meanwhile, love in the film is the main answer to all the challenges facing the modern man.
