Harbour Lights (1960)

Synopsis

 

In a small fishing village, a broken street lamp is thrown on the rubbish dump. During a heavy storm, a fishing boat goes off course. The old lighthouse has fallen asleep, but the street lamp is taking over.

 

"My first fully finished film 'Harbor Lights' had plenty of sound defects and even clumsy animation, but it also had some positive aspects: a decent screenplay and a simply stylized but powerful graphics."
