One of the first real films as we know them today, this is a flight of the imagination, capturing audiences with the magic of the moving image to transport them to the moon. A group of astronomers agree to be part of a dangerous exploration mission and are rocketed into space. When they land on the moon, they encounter surreal plants, creatures and fantastical beings, all visualised with inventive special effects. Legendary cinema pioneer Georges Melies created this iconic work that, even at only fourteen minutes long, will linger in the memory long after it is over, and has influenced many films that have followed it.
