Runaway

Runaway Title (White)

A Film

By Tony Del Degan

A teenage girl, forbidden from listening to rock and roll by her
chauvinistic father, breaks into his off-limits music room.

Robin is a young teenage girl in the 80’s, and all she wants to do is listen to rock and roll. Her father, however, doesn’t think girls should be exposed to that kind of thing, and everything takes a dark turn once Robin disobeys her father and breaks into his private music collection room. 

I kind of see this as my opinion on the sameness of our modern music industry and society in general, as well as  a piece to inspire power in young people who are oppressed. It’s a shorter film, starring only one actor, but is meant as a love letter to one of my favorite decades (which I unfortunately wasn’t born early enough to experience) and my views on freedom and creative expression.
