One of the most inventive manifestations of early cinema, Georges Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon, is now honoured by one of the most expensive and sophisticated restorations in film history.
Beyond an introduction to this fantasy-imbued universe (with lots of stunning fragments from old Méliès films), this film is also a case-study of state-of-the-art digital restoration. Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Michel Gondry and others demonstrate their admiration and put Méliès’ achievements into perspective.
