THE EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE

DIRECTOR: Serge Bromberg, Eric Lange - FRANCE

The magical Georges Méliès, one of the celebrated heroes of Martin Scorsese’s new movie Hugo, was the creator of one of the most unforgettable images in cinema—the Man in the Moon being poked in the eye by a rocket ship. Now, thanks to one of the most technically sophisticated restorations in film history, the original A Trip to the Moon can thrill audiences once again. This fascinating documentary charts the film’s voyage from production in 1902 to the astonishing rediscovery of a color nitrate print in 2003 and its premiere at Cannes in 2011. (60 mins.)

Presented with the complete hand-painted color version of A Trip to the Moon, the first outer space adventure in the history of cinema, in which six members of the Astronomers’ Club set off on an expedition to the moon, encounter the Selenites and flee their King, and return home to a triumphant parade. (19 mins.)

Filmography: Inferno (09).
