The Red Balloon / White Mane

1953 NR

After several cowboys fail, a boy tames a beautiful white horse in White Mane, part of a double bill of enchanting French films about children. In The Red Balloon, a boy spends a magical afternoon with a red balloon that follows him across Paris. Albert Lamorisse directed this charming story and cast his then-6-year-old son, Pascal, in the lead role, creating a memorable fable about friendship and loss.
