Product Notes

Blu-ray + DVD edition. Once believed lost, a copy of the original, hand-colored version of George Melies masterwork A Trip to the Moon was miraculously found in Barcelona, Spain in 1993. Initially thought too fragile to restore, the film underwent one of the most complex and ambitious film restoration projects ever. Three experts in film restoration - Lobster Films, Groupama Gan Foundation, and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage - used the most advanced digital technologies available to assemble and painstakingly restore the film's 13,375 fragmented frames. Follow six scholars-members of the Astronomers' Club-as they set off on an expedition to the moon! Traveling in a bullet-shaped rocket fired into space by a giant cannon, these voyagers arrive to meet the moon's inhabitants: the Selenites. Escaping the Selenties' king, the scholars fall back to Earth in their rocket and are fished out of the ocean by a sailor. Applause and a triumphant parade for the six heroes concludes the first outer-space adventure in the history of cinema. Flicker Alley, Lobster Films, and Blackhawk Films are thrilled to present this re-released publication of the 1902 hand-colored edition of A Trip to the Moon. This deluxe dual-format edition features two brand new scores by Jeff Mills and Dorian Pimpernel, as well as an improvised piano track by Serge Bromberg with optional narration written by George Méliès.
