GILBERTO & THE WIND

 

Category:

Short color film for children

 

Produced by:

McGraw-Hill

 

 

 

Date:

1967

 

 

 

Duration:

8 minutes

 

Outline:

Harry Belafonte narrates this superb adaptation of Marie Hall Ets 1963      

    children's classic about a little boy and his adventures with his delightful and 
    unpredictable friend - the wind! The wind plays with Gilberto and his balloon, 
    the clothes on the wash, and an umbrella. The wind blows the grass and 
    leaves, blows apples out of the tree, and helps fly a kite, sail a boat, spin a 
    pinwheel, and carry away pretty soap bubbles. Using Ets' original illustrations, 
    the film beautifully captures the many moods of the wind - sometimes a gentle 
    friend, at other times fierce and exasperating.
