Runaway

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 1740s Hudson Valley, New York, Sue (an enslaved woman on the Philipsburg plantation) attempts to help two runaway slaves under the nose of a seething overseer, all while trying to keep her daughter from being sold off the next day. Filmed on location at the preserved Manor House and Farm, Runaway is a story of slavery in the north before the American Revolution with characters based on the real people of the Philipsburg Upper Mill. While largely fictional, it is a genuine illustration of tragedies enslaved people faced during this period.
