ABOUT THE PROJECT
RUN is a collaboration between filmmaker Luke Ohlson, actor Anne Troup, and cinematographer Rachel Helling. We started off with a basic premise: a woman using her daily routine to work through an internal upheaval. That idea, the power of ritual in daily life, evolved into a woman's personal struggle with an unintended pregnancy in the face of increasing political turbulence.
We began shooting this film in early 2016. Each time we came together to film we talked about the increasingly dire political landscape, how our character might be reacting, and then we got to work. The finished film reflects that evolving, adaptable process.
