festivals and reviews
As part of the town's anniversary commemorations, "Running with Mum" was shown at the Centralstation along with an earlier documentary "Brandmale".
The film was shown with German subtitles as "Der Weg meiner Mutter".
A capacity audience of over 400 came, causing the doors to be closed half an hour before the start and leaving many outside. A very moving screening, attended by other survivors and young people alike, it was followed by an hour and a half of lively discussion between audience and panel.
The audience found the film exceptionally moving. Sitting in the dark and watching the big screen of Cinema really brought home the power and poignancy of the story, leaving many in tears and angry at the pointlessness of civilian attacks.
Many thanks to Erich Shultz (Festival Director) and to Meghan Horvath (Docs Programmer)
