      1902/2011 > USA/France > Directed by Georges Méliès/Serge Bromberg & Eric Lange
      As part of a magical Georges Méliès evening, Cornell Cinema will screen the black & white version of the short A Trip to the Moon (which figures prominently in the new film Hugo), the first outer-space adventure in the history of cinema, with a live, improvised score by The Electric Golem (electronic music by Trevor Pinch & James Spitznagel). It will be followed by the restored hand-painted color version of the legendary film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. This version features a new soundtrack by the French band AIR. Then The Extraordinary Voyage by Serge Bromberg & Eric Lange, a one-hour documentary charting the film's amazing story, from its fantastical production in 1902 to the astonishing rediscovery of a nitrate print in color in 1993 to its premiere at Cannes. Interviews with some of contemporary cinema's most imaginative filmmakers, including Michel Gondry, Martin Scorsese, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) attest to Méliès’ enduring significance. More at Tickets available at and starting Monday, February 27 from the Cornell Cinema Office, 104 Willard Straight Hall, from 9am-5pm. Party details at 16mm/35mm/Digital projection
