Le Ballon Bleu is her story and the origin story for the red and blue balloons from the classic children's film. Like the original film, this is a story about the magic and innocence of childhood and the importance of friendship. The film showcases many of the same Parisian locations as the original film as the filmmakers designed the film so it could be intercut seamlessly with the original. Dialogue is in French with English subtitles and the film was shot on iPhone.

ANYONE CAN SAY I, BUT WHO SAYS WE?
KATHARINA RABI
Series: FOREIGN STUDENT SHORT, AGES 12-18
Description - At the Senior Class of a New Middle school in Lower Austria, currently the topic of "democracy" has been dealt with. Although the pupils have been divided into two groups due to the Corona pandemic, they should learn how to make decisions collectively as part of a class council. At the same time in a different location, covered chandeliers and offices wrapped in tarpaulins hint at the state of an abandoned pomp building. While empty meeting rooms and old lecterns are being renovated in the Austrian parliament building, the pupils find themselves in the new roles of their everyday school-life. What processes and conflicts are the young people confronted with, at a time when life as a class community is being put to the test?
