THE RED BALLOON

Director:

34 minutes| France| 1957 (+ 1 hour workshop)


This film screened 28th February 2010.

Our family film for February is this classic Oscar-winning French film. Mostly without dialogue (ideal for those who are unsure about subtitles!) the 34-minute film tells the story of a young boy, Pascal, who follows a red balloon around the streets of Paris. His journey around the post-war streets is one of childlike wonder, joy and adventure, followed by a loss of innocence.Director Albert Lamorisse’s career was tragically cut short, yet this film and his other short, The Mane, have immortalised him as a filmmaker with a truly cinematic sense of storytelling.

After the screening, and in association with Poetry Ireland, storyteller Liz Weir will bring the audience on an imaginary journey around Dublin, all from the comfort of the cinema.

Join us for this rare cinematic treat.
