Revolution begins young—and can be quiet or loud in this double bill of remarkable, timeless yet timely masterpieces from France. In the legendary Jean Vigo’s ZERO FOR CONDUCT, 4 boarding school boys start a surrealist rebellion against their repressive administration and teachers. In THE RED BALLOON, Pascal, the young hero of Albert Lamorisse’s truly charming fable, is befriended by a red balloon that starts to follow him around Paris. Both films unrated but would likely be G or PG. In French with English subtitles. 44 min/36 min. 1933/1956.
