Director: Albert Lamorisse

Le Ballon rouge is a 1956 fantasy featurette directed and written by French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse who is best known for his award winning short films which he began making in the late 1940s.The thirty four minutes short film was about a story between a little boy and a red balloon features their one day adventure.

The film won numerous awards, including an Oscar for Lamorisse for writing the best original screenplay in 1956 and the Palme d'Or for short films at the 1956 Cannes Film Festival. The film has also become one of the most popular with children and the educators. 

Following the adventure with the boy, ironically we saw the indifference between kid’s world is full of curiosity and love, and on the other hand the adult’s world is cold and mean. Is that because we all lost our innocence and purity along the process of growing up? From the eyes of red balloon, it gave us a preview of the pain that we much go through while entering the adulthood and then question raised, have we already forgotten about how to be curious and what to dream about?

In 2007, referenced by Le ballon rouge, French-Taiwanese film director Hou Hsiao-Hsien directed Flight of the Red Balloon. And, what would we expect to see the world through the red balloon in 2007? We are inquisitive.
