A young drummer attends a high-end music conservatory where his dreams of greatness are mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realize a student’s potential.  This breath-taking film is a study in harsh educational methods– both physical and mental, and the cost of “success” in a highly competitive field.

This low-budget independent film made it to the top of 2014’s acclaimed dramatic films, and is notable for its amazing technical, emotional and narrative innovations.

An illuminating look into a country still steeped in its brutal past.  –Newsday

Thematically rich, compelling and naturally acted, it begs viewers to consider life in a world where the rules don’t apply to those with power, and where God is either dead or just being ignored.  –Dallas Morning News



Kolya (AlexeÏ Serebriakov) lives in a small fishing town near the stunning Barents Sea in Northern Russia. He owns an auto-repair shop that stands right next to the house where he lives with his young wife Lilya (Elena Liadova) and his son Roma (SergueÏ Pokhodaev) from a previous marriage.

 Live Q & A with the director after the film via Skype Video


Stephanie Green

Stephanie Green

Oscar-nominated director of RUN & JUMP,
Stephanie Green, will present a live video Skype Q&A from Hollywood, following Saturday’s screening, and discuss the challenges of  women directors in today’s film industry.







About the Film:

Run and Jump is an award-winning gem of a modern indie film. Made in gorgeous County Kerry, Ireland, it tells the story of a small-town Irish family in difficult straits, and an uptight visitor from America who rescues both the family and himself.


It is a gripping journey through developments that are comic, tragic, surprising, and immensely fulfilling. Run and Jump is the first feature of director, Stephanie Green, who was born in San Francisco, but spent much of her life in Ireland, with her Irish grandmother, and now divides her time between California and Ireland.


The screenplay is by Irish author Ailbhe Keogan. It stars Will Forte, who did an 8-year stint on Saturday Night Live, and then turned to dramatic film roles with Run and Jump and Nebraska. Respected British stage and screen actress Maxine Peake co-stars.

Studio-C Cinema has moved its primary screening space to The Warehouse Performing Arts Center in Cornelius, North Carolina.  After a successful fifteen month partnership with The Cornelius Art Center, we agreed that our rapid growth could not be effectively accommodated in their busy multi-pupose art studio/classroom space.


We therefore have partnered with The Warehouse Performing Arts Center, a five-year old purpose-built theater that can accommodate our expanding schedule.  Also, as a finished theater, The Warehouse meets our technical needs of good sight lines, comfortable seating, good acoustics, fully controllable lighting, and efficiencies gained in a permanent, single-purpose theater space.


We are grateful to the town of Cornelius, the Cornelius Parks, Arts, Recreation Culture Department, Jen Crickenberger, director of the Cornelius Art Center, and her entire staff  for helping us become a viable community arts institution serving the greater Cornelius and north Charlotte region.


We look forward to a good relationship with the CAC, and assisting them with special screenings.  We hope to support them in their role as the area’s premier arts  incubator.
