The film edited by Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux from over a hundred films by the Lumière brothers takes viewers on a journey to the early days of cinema.

A plate that “dances” in the sun; a sudden movement of air in a room with closed doors and windows; a train going full-speed towards the audience—at the turn of the last century recordings of these simple events by Auguste and Louis Lumière seemed a miracle. Their invention—the cinematograph—soon changed the leisure of people around the world.

Thierry Fremaux has been planning his cinematic homage to the first filmmakers since the early 1980s, when he first saw their film Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory on the big screen. The ninety-minute montage of 108 films by the Lumière brothers with Fremaux’s comments was produced with the help of Martin Scorsese. Films from different years are edited into a moving and fascinating story of the great inventors of the technology and the language that have changed the world.
