Le Ballon Rouge

Le Ballon Rouge (Albert Lamorisse 1965)

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’.
