Must End Jan 3!
The Red Balloon is one of the most beloved of classic childhood fantasies. Shot in the picturesque Menilmontant neighborhood of Paris, it is a tender and charming story of a little boy (Pascal Lamorisse, the director's 6-year-old son) befriended by a large red balloon. The amazingly expressive balloon wreaks havoc on the boy's daily routine, following him everywhere. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival's Grand Prize, it also won an Academy Award for Best Screenplay—a rare honor for a short film, not to mention foreign and dialogue-free. Director Albert Lamorisse's earlier White Mane (Crin-Blanc) is the story of a boy's love for a wild horse that only he can tame. Shot in the wild and lonely marshy region of southern France, La Camargue; narrated in English.
