Screening w/ Filmmaker Q&A
Meg Knowles (Dir), 70 minutes, NY Premiere, USA
Buffalo-based filmmaker Meg Knowles retraces the steps of her sister, who in the summer of '73 ran away from an upscale New England summer camp, hitchhiking cross-country to California. Weaving a tale of teen angst gone off the rails, a mother’s patient desperation and a sister’s disbelief, Knowles’ warm, personal documentary begs the question: does retracing your steps heal old wounds or make new ones?
Runaway is available online, and will also be screening at the Dark Alley Drive-in on Friday, October 9, 2020 from 7:30 - 9:30 PM.
