Creative League: Magic of Melies Screening April 14th

George Melies

George Méliès was a French illusionist and filmmaker famous for leading many technical and narrative developments in the earliest days of cinema. Méliès, a prolific innovator in the use of special effects, accidentally discovered the substitution stop trick in 1896, and was one of the first filmmakers to use multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted colour in his work. Because of his ability to seemingly manipulate and transform reality through cinematography, Méliès is sometimes referred to as the first “Cinemagician”.

On April 14th at 7pm, we will be screening a program of fantastic films by this pioneer filmmaker on the big screen from newly restored prints. Prepare to be amazed!
