Canada, 1972

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

A children’s fantasy where building blocks and musical effects do everything. Blocks represent the make-believe city and the two children who play in it. Blocks act out the story when an angry dragon appears on the scene and the music underscores the action. The puppet theatre is so colourfully presented that everyone is absorbed and entertained. A film without words. (Awards: five including London; Annecy)
