Movie – Run Raven Run

March 5, 2023 @ 5:05 pm 7:00 pm

DC Independent Film Festival invites you on March 5 at 5:05 pm to a screening of the documentary / film “Run Raven Run” directed by Michael Rainin at the Landmark’s E Street Cinema located at 555 11th Street, NW, in Washington, DC. This showing is part of the 24th annual DC Independent Forum.

Despite an historical legacy that dealt the dark cards of slavery, holocaust and poverty, music has always been the winning hand for Gypsy survival. From the deserts of Rajasthan to the ghettos of Bucharest, Run Raven Run explores the resounding pain and pleasure that emanates from the unvanquished soul of Gypsy music.

Director Michael Rainin has served as a producer and director for countless productions across film, television, and online platforms including promotional campaigns for FX Network’s Nip/Tuck and commercials, music videos and web productions for revered artists and performers. Michael’s company RAINPIX, INC. recently produced a short documentary for Spike Lee’s new film Da Five Bloods for Netflix. Spike Lee gives an unprecedented look behind the scenes at creating the movie posters for his latest joint, Da 5 Bloods. Michael recently completed directing and the cinematography on Lana Love’s new single Ego Go music video which will be released in July, 2021. Michael is also an avid surfer, rock climber, and mountain climber.
