Somewhere around here, the cinema was born. Many of us know the iconic shot of the moon-face who gets hit in the eye by a spacecraft – even if you haven’t seen A Trip to the Moon. This most well-known early fictional film was a huge success, groundbreaking and highly influential for the future of cinema as we know it. Georges Méliès brought the concept of the narrative film to the world stage. Join Karri and Henrik as they explain how ‘The Moon’ changed everything.
A Trip to the Moon (Le voyage dans la lune) (1902). Directed by Georges Méliès. Starring Georges Méliès, Bleuette Bernon, François Lallement, Henri Delannoy.
