About this event
Presented with an artfully curated medley of experimental short films paired with live performances by members of the International Contemporary Ensemble. Additional selections include a trio of stop-motion shorts by the internationally renowned Jodie Mack and a summery film collage by Turkish filmmakers Merve Kayan and Zeynep Dadak. 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. — Janus Films
