From the director of Heavenly Nomadic comes the story of twelve-year-old Jekshen, an exceptional runner, who lives in a beautiful mountain village in Kyrgyzstan. But there are problems in his life, which winning the prize at a local running race could help him overcome. With its big heart, Running to the Sky paints an expressive portrait of a young boy shaping his own destiny.

Winner FIPRESCI Prize at Busan International Film Festival 2019

Gan gyfarwyddwr Heavenly Nomadic (WOW 2019) daw stori Jekshen sy’n ddeuddeg oed, yn rhedwr eithriadol, ac yn byw mewn pentref mynyddig hardd yn Kyrgyzstan. Ond mae yna broblemau yn ei fywyd, a byddai ennill y wobr mewn ras redeg leol yn ei helpu i’w goresgyn. Mae’r hyfryd Running to the Sky yn paentio portread mynegiadol o fachgen ifanc yn siapio ei ffawd ei hun.
