A SELECTION OF SHORT FILMS BY GEORGES MÉLIÈS
Director: Georges Méliès
1899-1909, France, 120
Screenwriter: Georges Méliès
April in Paris opens with our well-loved Sunday matinee of silent film…and the much-anticipated musical accompaniment of pianist Patrick Miller from the Hartt School of Music! These rarely seen short films by early pioneer Méliès stood at the threshold as filmmaking became a new and unique art. Their voyages inspire a leap into the imagination, where the moon can shed tears, and indelible images find eternal life on the big screen.
After the films, join us for coffee and pastries donated by the Alliance Francaise of Hartford.
