La première mondiale du film “The Runway” a eu lieu lors du Festival du film de Galway (Galway Film Fleadh) du 6 au 11 juillet 2010.

“The Runway” a reçu le prix du public du meilleur long-métrage “Feature Audience Award”.

Le film a été réalisé par l’Irlandais Ian Power et coproduit par le Luxembourgeois Bernard Michaux (lucil).

Le tournage s’est déroulé en grande partie sur le territoire luxembourgeois avec des nombreux techniciens locaux, dont Gast Waltzing (musique), Amine Jaber (montage), Uli Simon (costumes) ainsi que les acteurs Claire Johnston, JeanFrançois Wolff ou encore John Molloy.

Le film sortira au Luxembourg en automne prochain.

Synopsis anglais
Nine-year-old Paco Thomas misses his dad. His mother says he was a Spanish sailor, but Paco can’t remember. They live in Dromoleen, a poor town, crippled by a factory closure where Paco spends his days getting into trouble and his nights learning Spanish from an old linguaphone tape for when his dad comes home… But late one night, the life of Paco, his mother, and the whole town is changed when a mysterious Colombian pilot crash-lands his plane in woods on the outskirts of town. As the fractious community comes together to decide the fate of their visitor, Paco is called up as the sole Spanish speaker – and through a translation rich with poetic licence, he manages to convince the town to set out to help his new Colombian friend.

Inspired by true events that happened outside Mallow in 1983 and captured the imagination of the nation.
