The Man, the Snake and the Fox

Top of page

This film is a dramatization of a traditional Ojibwa legend; it is told to a group of children. As the story unfolds, the characters played by puppets assume increasingly human characteristics. The moral of the fable: do not make promises that cannot be kept.

1978, 11 min 58 s
