Millie Goldsholl’s “Up is Down”


We must have had a decent media budget for my elementary school because at least once a week they would show us a movie or a cartoon. As an adult I have been tracking down some of the one I really enjoyed. Last week I found Millie Goldsholl’s “Up is Down” and it sent a flood of memories coming back. Someone in the school must have really liked this one, because I am pretty sure we watched it several dozen times.

If you have not seen it, you are in for a real late 1960s treat. In this 6 minute short, an unconventional young boy who is temporarily persuaded to accept others’ viewpoints as his own.
