Georges Méliès. The magic of film.

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
An homage to the man considered to be film's first wizard, Georges Méliès. The exhibition traces the diversity of his work and the value it has had and continues to have on the evolution of film. Where does Méliès come from? How did he create his extraordinary universe? What were his sources of inspiration? This exhibition will show that the roots of his world lie in the very origins of cinema: pyrotechnics and optical effects, horizontal and vertical wipes, stop motion, dissolving views, multiple exposure, and montage and colour effects. You could start to get the impression that Méliès himself invented and used every trick that's ever been pulled out of cinema's black hat.
