Flurina

UK, 1968 (MIFF 1969, Programme 34)

Director: John Halas

A 12-year-old girl on holiday in the Swiss Alps rescues a small wild bird from the claws of an eagle. The tender relationship between the two is charmingly narrated in animation and colour, revitalizing a famous children's story from Central Europe.
