This Estonian nature film is so soothing. Two brothers find wolf puppies and a crane and raise them. There's a melancholic Kes vibe here that I really like... reminds me of the weird European nature films that my relatives in Japan were always watching on TV whenever we visited them when I was a boy. Watch.

Quick follow-up about This is Tomorrow -- one of the visual props in the film is this beautiful book by Max Parrish of the London County Council. Must have come out right around the time of the festival itself in 1951. Beautiful color illustrations by Gordon Cullen.
