Interesting, Particularly in Comparison With "La Sortie des usines Lumière", 10 March 2005
Author: Snow Leopard from Ohio

This interesting footage is particularly worth seeing as a companion piece to, and as a comparison with, the Lumière classic, "La Sortie des usines Lumière". The two features have much in common, and they are interesting for many of the same reasons.

In both movies, there is a rather sizable crowd moving towards the camera, knowing that they are being filmed. The main difference is that this movie features professional photographers, as they arrive to attend a congress of a photographic society. Their reactions are largely the same as were those of the factory workers, but many of the "professionals" seem more determined to hide their curiosity. On the other hand, a number of them show their interest even more eagerly, tipping their hats in a particularly jaunty fashion, demonstrating a bit of showmanship of their own.

As with the footage of the factory workers, the motion towards the camera is effective, and here the background scenery also has some interesting details. This film is also self-referential in one interesting respect, since the subjects of the film were also its initial audience. It's all rather interesting to take in.
