Part of the Shadowgraph Teaching Series, this film follows the travels of Vasco Núñez de Balboa. Made by a group of children in the Vancouver, British Columbia schools under the supervision of Malcolm Morrison, action is simple and is photographed in silhouette. Gives the most important facts about Columbus and his explorations in this simple form. Intended for 4th and 5th grade pupils and has a definite appeal for them. A good film to inspire youngsters to try making films themselves. (Educational Film Guide, 1946)
