Film Screenings


Run Woman Run

January 20, 2023, Bauer Theatre

“Save a mile for yourself. Honor your own life.”

Single mother Beck has been running from reality. Herbreakfast of champions is a 5 cream, 5 sugar coffee and donuts. Something has to give and it does when Beck finds herself in a diabetic coma and visited by a ghostly ancestor, the legendary Indigenous marathon runner Tom Longboat, who becomes her wise-cracking new life coach. Told with a lighthearted touch, Run Woman Run is a feel-good anti-rom-com about a woman who has to tackle the ghosts of her past before she can run toward a new future.

Written and directed by Zoe Hopkins
Featuring Dakota Ray Hebert (Beck), Jayli Wolf (Jess), Asivak Koostachin (Tom)
