Free spirits face oppression in a playful and poetic ode to desire
This artistic short is a curious little number and was winner of the Prix de Fantasie Poetique at Cannes in 1954. It is notable for being filmed within the ruined terraces and the derelict parkland of the Crystal Palace, and we are treated to a very rare and quite pleasing shot of the main station building to Crystal Palace High Level station, which itself was to close only a year after filming.
