Le Voyage du Ballon Rouge

When I was a chronically sad and hopelessly romantic fifteen year old, I went to go see The Flight of the Red Balloon at The Plaza, which is a small theatre built in the 1930s located in downtown Calgary. Before the show started, short films created by students at ACAD appeared on the screen. I went alone and sat near the back like I often do when I see movies. 

Now, 4 years later, I vividly remember some scenes from the film. One that particularly stands out is a scene where the nanny is in a park with the boy and she's wearing layered black down to the ground. For whatever reason, this is the image that comes to mind when I think about the film now. Recently though, I decided to rewatch it and, strangely enough, that scene doesn't exist. There's a scene of her in the park, but her outfit is incredibly different than what I've been remembering for the past 4 years. Still though, that memory is what inspired my most recent OotD.
