Product Description

This works brings together the sory of a young boy living somewhere in Europe in the not-so-distant past, with scenes based on the film "Au hasard Balthazard" (1966) which is centred on the persecution of Marie and Balthazar the donkey.

Though the pictures which follow do not illustrate the words, the film builds on their connection which starts in the place where the boy's story begins, a patch of ground known locally as the donkey field.
