As a child I saw “Le Ballon rouge” (1956), by Albert Lamorisse and just fell in love with the story. It is a short film about a small boy in the Parisian neighborhood of Menilmontant, who gets a magic balloon that follows him everywhere. The small boy is a dreamer and free within his imagination. He encounters bullies who literally puncture his dreams and happiness. It’s a message that can resonate within us all. The film ends with all the other Parisian balloons coming to his rescue.
