Running Naked: World Premiere at BJIFF

Running Naked, a full length independent production that Andrew Gower stars in alongside Matthew McNulty (Misfits, Black Work), will have its world premiere at the 10th annual Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF) in the week of 22 – 29 August 2020.

Mark and Ben have been friends since meeting as teenage cancer patients. Twenty years later, Mark is a successful, womanizing doctor while Ben has become a neurotic recluse – a prisoner of his own obsessive rituals and wacky habits. A dramatic piece of news upends their lives and challenges Mark and Ben’s friendship to the core. To break Ben out of his shell, Mark stakes everything he – and Ben – has, and drags his mate on an adventure that will change both their lives.
