another short slice of filmic history from the original visual prestidigitator Georges Melies,
Before "A Trip to the Moon" we had this.
It's a 1 minute of absurdness and its great.
Oldest film seen so far
Is even more impressive when you remember this is 120 years old.
Lune moqueuse par la fenêtre dans la nuit noire.
6 - Playfully-edited short displaying an infant cinema slowly beginning to realize a tiny fraction of its full potential. Slight, but endlessly charming.

The first exploring of the subconscious in cinema
Should have been longer and more disturbing.
Whimsical and fast-paced short by Melies.
This is where it all comes together...
