Le ballon rouge - Albert Lamorisse (1956)
..and us girls we played with the leftover strips of their precious fabrics, and our dolls they had fairytale dresses.
And while breathing we learned about needle feed stitching, hand embroidery, in a flow of middle-Eastern geometries, Byzantine arabesques, ancient emblems, acanthus leaves, the native plant which had been used to heal the Tarantula bite, a myth created over than 2000 years ago by this land’s women as a way out for patriarchal rules and social conventions. But we didn't know, and we didn't care; unaware about the treasure we owned, we let it in, following concentration and estrangement rhythm, we wove with the threads our souls expression, we poured into every notch ourselves and our dreams. We just played.
-Questa è una punizione, signori, non una festa
-Bene, questo spiegherebbe l'assenza dei palloncini
Quando ero piccola e mi regalavano un palloncino lo lasciavo sempre andare, mi piaceva vedere come saliva in cielo, mi faceva sentire libera
