Bushwick, Brooklyn, Sept. 2007

And now, a blast from the past. How may of you remember “The Red Balloon”? It’s a French film about a boy who finds a red balloon that seems to have a mind of its own. It follows him all over Paris as he rides buses, goes to school and browses an antiques market.

I saw it many times as a kid, either as a movie at school (remember those huge, clunky projectors?) or on television - I can’t remember which. Well, last night, on a whim, I decided to see if it’s on YouTube. And of course, it is. Enjoy!
