About She Runs

by William Le Personnic

Yu, an obstinate teenage girl, would like to quit her despotic gym class. Both resistant and resigned, she drags her feet, tries to make a break for it and even considers taking downright drastic measures. Having won the Palme d’or in 2017 for his short film A Gentle Night, Qiu Yang gets inspiration from his own - equally frustrating – experience, to display weary, buoyant bodies. The frames, as meticulous as paintings, are the heartbeat of a storytelling where great emphasis is placed on off-frame action and inventive simplicity.
