Chinese-Lanterns

Animated / Short (1935) 8 minutes ~ Black & White [Silent]

Feature:

The “everyday life” of a Chinese Family. Little children are making paper lanterns when a storm comes. The winds blow the lanterns away and up into the sky, and the children hang on. Their friend, a stork, flies up into the sky with a rope. Their father holds the other end of the rope, and the kids slide down to safety.

Director:  Burt Gillett, Ted Eshbaugh
