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

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
