A Trip To The Moon & The Extraordinary Voyage
A film by George Méliès, Serge Bromberg, Eric Lange
George Méliès died in obscurity over seventy years ago, but as a central character to the story of Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, his life and work are being rediscovered. This color restoration of his masterpiece A Trip to the Moon took nearly 10 years and $500,000 to complete and features a beautiful new soundtrack by the internationally known French electronica group AIR. A Trip to the Moon will be shown along with The Extraordinary Voyage a documentary about Méliés, his influence on modern filmmakers, and the amazing process of restoring a single deteriorating copy of a 100 year old film. This presentation is an unprecedented opportunity to see an incredible restoration of a landmark piece of film history and a unique treat for all film lovers.
Surely a cinematic highlight of the year, maybe the century.
