The First Science Fiction Film

Le_Voyage_dans_la_luneDreamy and surreal, it lives up to its name:

A Trip to the Moon (French: Le Voyage dans la lune) is a 1902 French black-and-white silent science fiction film. The film was written and directed by Georges Méliès, assisted by his brother Gaston. It is based loosely on two popular novels of the time: From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne and The First Men in the Moon by H. G. Wells.

It is the first science fiction film and uses innovative animation and special effects, including the well-known image of the spaceship landing in the moon’s eye.

    Religion is the oldest form of Science Fiction but that’s Theater not Film.

    Note: Melies had already created what could be the earliest vampire film in
    1897 and this is probably the earliest Monster Movie / Film.

    Love that little flick…but I also love Verne and Wells’ books. I remember the first time I saw this in a film class…and even years later Méliès still stands as the first great visionary of film as art.
