Synopsis:
'The Red Balloon' and 'White Mane' remain timeless and wonderful children's classics. Unseen for years, these award-winning short films have been recently restored so as to present them in the best possible picture quality. The two films were both directed by the award-winning Albert Lamorisse, a man who the New York Times has described as"...a remarkable artist: one of the cinema's best poets and a fearless explorer of the scary and exhilarating outbacks of the imagination".

The Red Balloon (1956)
The award-winning and critically acclaimed fantasy short film directed by Albert Lamorisse follows the relationship between a little boy and a red balloon with a mind of its own that he befriends on the Parisian streets. Widely recognised as one of the most important films in children's cinema, this 1956 classic is the only dialogue-free film to win an Oscar for Best Screenplay.
White Mane (1953)
The 1953 French classic and winner of the Palme D'Or at Cannes tells the tale of a boy who tames a wild stallion called White Mane. Filmed in the marshes of the Camargue in south-west France, 'White Mane' is a beautiful journey into the wilderness that remains a groundbreaking work of children's cinema to this day.
