The Runner (d. Ana Lazarevic) is a 2012 Student Academy Award nominee, and an official selection of the 2011 New York Film Festival. The film premiered at a sold out screening at the IFC Center in April, screened at the DGA Theater on May 6, at an industry panel at Creative Arts Agency in Los Angeles on June 8, and at 20th Century Fox on June 9.

The Runner is a Serbian language film. I edited the picture without reading script and without subtitles, which was a challenge considering I don’t speak Serbian. The process of cutting a movie without being able to understand the dialogue was a revelation. It forced me to focus on what was really happening between people, to listen to what the characters say with their eyes, faces and body language, and to prioritize the energy of the images and emotions on screen. The Runner taught me once and for all that a movie is something that happens between the lines.

I remember thinking how I had never seen a film like Edward Scissorhands when I first watched it in 1990. It was unique cinema that felt like pure magic. The bizarre beauty of the film and the gentle hero with his lethally sharp scissorhands stayed with me through out the years. Looking back, after almost 20 years, I now understand better the fierce longing and intense loneliness that the film had stirred in me. -Joan Chen, the Elizabeth Taylor of China/the Josie Packard of my dreams
