Leaf

USA, 1962 (MIFF 1964)

Director: Fred Hudson

A lone autumn leaf hangs on a maple tree high in the mountains. The wind shakes it loose — we follow its journey as it soars through the air,hovers on a ledge and finally alights on a stream where it is caught by the current and earned off into the shadows.
