The Goose Girl
The Goose GirlThis ancient tale of mistaken identity, endurance and the triumph of virtue through honorable means is translated to 17th-century America. While escorting a princess on horseback to her bridegroom, a jealous maid forces the princess to swap roles. When they arrive at the bridegroom's village, the princess (disguised as the maid) tends the geese and the maid (disguised as the princess) prepares to marry the prince. Eventually, Falada, the princess's talking horse - and the princess's own magical powers - reveal her true identity.

The Goose Girl and the jealous maid(18 min., ages 5-adult)
