1987. When music fanatic Javed discovers the illustrious back catalogue of The Boss, his world is turned upside down; already a creative soul his passion for music and writing is set alight by the songs of the working-class poet, whose lyrics feel all too familiar to the aspirational teenager. Yearning to escape his rundown hometown and the rules of his traditional Pakistani household, Javed finds himself caught in between two worlds and must discover if he too is Born to Run.

Playing before each screening of Blinded by the Light is the short film Pa’lante directed by Kristian Mercado (Music Driven Award Winner, 2018 Nitehawk Shorts Festival).

Set both in New York and Puerto Rico, the film stars Mela Murder as Milagros, and Kareem Savinon as Manuel. Playing to the vocals of Alynda Segarra of Hurray for the Riff Raff. The film chronicles the Nuyorican and Puerto Rican experience and is a contemplation of family, love, and loss.
