Like many others of his time, George Méliès was enchanted by the Lumière brothers’ first film projection, but his passion for the medium consumed him and he became one of the most celebrated filmmakers of all time. Using theatrical, artisanal, and even illusionary techniques, Méliès created films that defined an era; his 14-minute film from 1902, Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon), still has a cult following. But after producing more than 500 films, the French artist went bankrupt.

To learn more about the intriguing life and work of this cinematic forefather – and to play filmmaker for a day – head along to ‘Georges Méliès, Mágico do Cinema’. Direct from the Cinémathèque Française in Paris, the show reveals how his innovative artistry took audiences to new realms over a century before 3D became routine.

The exhibition also features an interactive element, allowing visitors to create their own Méliès-style films for the exhibition’s website. There’s also a unique collection of photographs, costumes, drawings and films of the man considered the original master of special effects and editing techniques.
