Three years before The Red Balloon, director Albert Lamorisse made this enchanting short film about a young fisherman who tames a wild stallion called White Mane in the marshes of the Camargue in south-west France. The pair soon develop a close bond, but it's not long before the outside world enters and attempts to break up their friendship. This is a gentle but also gritty and haunting film, as the boy and White Mane are pursued by local ranchers wanting to capture the horse. Full of beautifully poetic black-and-white images, the stunning landscapes and wonderfully expressive performances make the film an enthralling watch.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
