Glasgow’s GFT will be showing Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s French-language debut, Flight of the Red Balloon from Friday 6 – Sunday 8 June.
Loosely inspired by Albert Lamorisse’s 1956 classic The Red Balloon, the film considers the hectic pace and isolated nature of urban life.
Juliette Binoche plays Suzanne, a single mum with a harassed domestic life. She works for a Chinese puppet theatre company in Paris, and employs Song, a Chinese film student, as nanny to her little boy. Song and Simon amuse themselves with visions of a red balloon wandering across the Paris skies.
Times and full details over at the GFT website.
