Event Description:
THE RED BALLOON (1956) A film by Albert Lamorisse France – 34 minutes – with English subtitles Newly restored, Albert Lamorisse’s exquisite THE RED BALLOON remains one of the most beloved children’s films of all time. In this deceptively simple, nearly wordless tale, a young boy discovers a stray balloon, which seems to have a mind of its own, on the streets of Paris. The two become inseparable, yet the world’s harsh realities finally interfere. With its glorious palette and allegorical purity, the Academy Award–winning THE RED BALLOON has enchanted movie lovers, young and old, for generations. “One of the great children’s films of all time. Which means it’s a great film for grown-ups, too.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer XXXXXXXXXXX PLASTIC BAG A film by Ramin Bahrani Voiced by Werner Herzog Music by Kjartan Sveinsson of Sigur Ros USA – 18 minutes This short film by American director Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo) traces the epic, existential journey of a plastic bag (voiced by Werner Herzog) searching for its lost maker, the woman who took it home from the store and eventually discarded it. Along the way, it encounters strange creatures, experiences love in the sky, grieves the loss of its beloved maker, and tries to grasp its purpose in the world. In the end, the wayward plastic bag wafts its way to the ocean, into the tides, and out into the Pacific Ocean trash vortex — a promised nirvana where it will settle among its own kind and gradually let the memories of its maker slip away. “Bahrani is the new great American director.” – Roger Ebert “A true triumph in short film-making… has the environmental and emotional sensibilities of Wall-E, and hearkens back to earlier Disney films.” – Ryan Gallagher, Criterion Cast
