Speed Cinema Presents: The Red Balloon (Le Ballon Rouge)

Directed by Albert Lamorisse

Sundays, August 14th – September 25th

Free Admission

In honor of the Speed’s Global Speed program this year dedicated to highlighting French culture, we present one of the most beloved children’s films of all time.  What seems like simply the story of a young boy and his balloon reveals itself to possess strong religious subtext as the boy fights to save his toy from danger. 1956, France, 16mm, 34 minutes.
