Related Event: Georges Melies: Cinema’s First Time Traveler with speakers Jason Silverman

Imagine the moment before cinema began. How did our concept of the universe change when the first audiences saw the first films? And how did Georges Méliès, the magician of early cinema, take us still deeper into new temporal spaces? Jason Silverman, Cinematheque Director at the CCA and a former writer for Wired magazine, shows clips and discusses Méliès’ work with Serge Bromberg, a leading authority on early cinema and the man who restored A Trip to the Moon.
