Inspired by the french film Le Ballon Rouge, Don’t Let Go tells the story of a man stuck in a humdrum existence who, through the most unlikely of saviours; rediscovers the simply beauty of play.
Don’t Let Go is a bleak and comical tale that insists that as we age we must still celebrate the joyful child like nature of play. As we progress through each stages of life, we might argue that newness becomes less and less this story applauds the importance of imagination, playfulness and discovery.
