SLIFF - Georges Melies Program
Georges Méliès Program

Georges Méliès and Georges Franju, France, 113 min.

Friday, Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m., Webster U./Moore

Celebrated in Martin Scorsese's "Hugo," silent-film pioneer George Méliès is one of cinema's seminal figures. This program features a gorgeous restoration of his hand-tinted A Trip to the Moon (1902, 13 min.) with a new score by the French band AIR. The program begins with a docudrama on the filmmaker, Le Grand Méliès (Georges Franju, 1952, 31 min.), and concludes with a sampling of Méliès shorts with original musical accompaniment by St. Louis' Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra. The selection features 10 works of 1-3 minutes each (Playing Cards, The Vanishing Lady, The Haunted Castle, The Temptation of St. Anthony, The Devil in a Convent, The Pillar of Fire, The One-Man Band, The Man with the Rubber Head, and The Melomaniac) and a trio of longer films of 16-20 minutes each (The Kingdom of Fairies, The Impossible Voyage, and The Merry Frolics of Satan). With live musical accompaniment by the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra.
