Lumiere and Company

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 28 min.

Plot Summary
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Auguste and Louis Lumiere's first moving film, Romane Bohringer sought out fellow filmmakers, requesting that they shoot short movies on cameras similar to the one used by the French brothers. Among those who said yes were Spike Lee, Arthur Penn and Wim Wenders. Combining scenes from the Lumieres' first films with footage from the contemporary directors using the old equipment, the documentary shows just how much film-making has evolved in a century.
