Was geschah wirklich zwischen den Bildern?

Directed by Werner Nekes
West Germany, 1986


An exhilarating and amusing encyclopedic look at the „prehistory“ of cinema. Nekes charts the fascination with moving pictures which led to the birth of film, covering shadow plays, peep shows, flip books, flicks, magic lanterns, lithopanes, scrolls and numerous other historical artiffices.
