Trip To The Moon, A

year: 1902
director: Georges Melies
cast: Victor Andre, Bleuette Bernon, Brunnet

A fantasy film, made in 1902 and directed by Georges Méli?s, who introduced the genre of science fiction to the cinema. ''A Trip to the Moon'', initially rejected by cinema owners due to length (they claimed that no one would want to watch a movie that lasts nearly a quarter of an hour), brought huge financial success to the Méli?s’s production company. Several astronauts in costumes from the beginning of XX century are flying to the Moon in a space capsule. It turns out that on the Earth's satellite there is a tribe of savages, who are trying to catch residents of the Earth. The film uses impressive animations and special effects.
