Run for Me

‘Run For Me’ is a film about hope, fear, chaffed nipples and free Mars Bars. Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard are the 2008 recipients of the Great North Run Moving Image Commission and this major new work is a collage of talking heads, taking in hundreds of runners, their supporters and spectators. The artists talk to race veterans and virgins, the man who devised the course, the manager of the information kiosk and even Superman!

A special preview screening of ‘Run For Me’ before it opens at BALTIC later in September, we are delighted to welcome Iain and Jane to talk about their film with Tyneside Cinema curator Rebecca Shatwell. Includes complimentary glass of wine on arrival.

Part of the Great North Run Cultural Programme.
