Albert Lamorisse’s simple and beautiful film from 1956 is the only short film to ever win an Oscar outside of the short film category. Its about a magical balloon that travels with a young boy through Paris, and creates a unique historical record of the city in the 50’s.
Update: Film Freaks Club points out that the director of this movie invented the board game ‘Risk’.
