Children and Cars

UK, 1970 (MIFF 1971, Programme 14)

Director: John Halas

Selected comments by children show that the motor car has now become accepted as an integral part of the family unit. Child-like drawings illustrate their remarks; the film then gradually expands into an animated cartoon world of fantasy.
