AUTOMATA at the Velaslavasay Panorama presents:
Magical Projections (curated by Steve Anker)
Saturday, December 3 at 8 pm
A program of ‘trick’ films made at the turn of the last century, when cinema was new and everything about it was magical. Fantastical apparitions, impossible occurrences and startling transformations flitted across the screen in a new sleight of hand no one had ever seen before. Filmmakers will include Georges Meiles, Ferdinand Zecca, Louis Feuillade, Emil Cohl, Ladislas Starevitch, Edwin S. Porter, J. Stuart Blackton and D.W. Griffith. With live musical accompaniment by Severin Behnen!
