The Runner (1985 film)
|Directed by||Amir Naderi|
|Produced by||Ali Reza Zarrin|
|Written by||Behrouz Gharibpour
|Edited by||Bahram Beizai|
The Runner was perhaps the first of the post-revolution Iranian films to attract worldwide attention. It set the tone for many of the films which followed: realism, child's eye perspective of the world, innocence, gentleness, set in poor neighbourhoods, exposing great disparities in wealth, resting much of the film on the shoulders of one young actor, using children's lives as analogies for, or explicit expositions of, the problems of the adult world.
