Synopsis:
In this extraordinary film, witnesses and historians tell Melies' incredible story. The Magic of Melies uses rare archival footage, film excerpts, and reconstructions to reveal the life, art, and unique techniques of the legendary film pioneer. Melies' innovations - including special effects, hand-tinting, backdrops, and costumes profoundly shaped the course of film history.
These magnificently restored prints are a dream-like journey into the world of Georges Melies. The 15 films presented here demonstrate the breadth of Melies' command of different genres, including trick film, spectacle, burlesque, and fantasy film.
