A 7-minute portrait of natural born fashion and street photographer 'Jimmy on the Run'.
Coming from rural China, he now roams the streets of Amsterdam always chasing the next best picture.
This short film shows Jimmy’s passion for the lens, his dynamic lifestyle and his struggle with family expectations.
“What begins as a flashy and seemingly superficial story gradually turns into a genuinely moving portrait
of a man who loves people and is ultimately looking for the appreciation and love of his own father.”
– Jan Doense & Rutger Hauer
“A beautiful portrait about a young man making portraits of others.”
– Eddy Terstall
