Le Ballon rouge (The Red Balloon)
France • 1956 • 34 minutes
Crin-Blanc (White Mane)
France • 1953 • 40 minutesWe are delighted to present this double bill of children’s films by director Albert Lamorisse. Le Ballon rouge is a charming story about a little Parisian boy (played by the director’s son Pascal) who finds an unlikely companion in a big red balloon. Since it was released in 1956, Le Ballon rouge has become a something of a cult classic, lodged in the visual memory of millions. Crin-Blanc is a magnificent stallion, leader of a herd of wild horses that are too proud to let themselves be broken by humans. Only Falsco, a young fisherman, manages to tame him. A strong friendship grows between the boy and horse. Together, they will go looking for the freedom that humans won’t let them have.
