A Trip to the Moon

Austria, 1958 (MIFF 1962)

Director: Karl Stanzl

The imagination of children transcends the technical problems of reaching the Moon in a spaceship. Children from seven countries were asked to submit drawings of the imagined lunar voyage; the results would make this a trip worth taking. A multi-prize winning Festival film.
