Runt Film has released a short clip showing its director admitting he didn’t really know what the film was about.
Speaking to the UK film magazine Film Society of Great Britain, Runt director Chris Diamant said: “I didn’t know the title, I didn’t realise it was a film, I hadn’t read it, I wasn’t paying attention.”
Running through the title “Runt”, the film opens in the year 2025 and follows a group of kids who have been sent to live with the parents of the previous generation.
The film follows the lives of the young people, who are all of different ages and backgrounds, as they try to survive a world full of violence and danger.
Diamant’s comments come as Runt continues to be hailed for its depiction of life under the dictatorship of the late dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu, who ruled Romania for 15 years.
In an interview with BBC Radio 5 live, Runcet director Chris De Metz told the programme that his favourite quote from the film came from a former Romanian president, who said the film had been the “best thing I have ever seen”.
“It’s really important that we are all in the film because it is a great story,” he said.
“We’re all a part of the film, and that’s really exciting.”
Running Through the title Runt, the film opening in the UK on August 3, 2019, tells the story of a group from a family called the Runts who live in a village in Romania.
The story focuses on the Runt children, who all have their own unique identities.
The young children all have different faces, different hair colours, different clothes, and different hobbies.
Some are in school and some are at work, while others are playing with toys.
But they all have the same passion for life, love, and freedom, which is why they are so passionate about this life.
Dias was also asked about the new Runt film that was recently released in the US and UK, where the film is being screened at a wide variety of festivals including the Sundance Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival.
Diaus said the new film was based on his childhood memories, and he was happy to see it received positive reviews from critics.
“It was a very important thing for me because I’m so proud of what I’ve done and I was happy about it,” he told the BBC.
“It was the best film I’ve ever made.”
The Runts documentary is due to be released in September.
