Storyline

The film celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of cinema. It presents the technical and artistic evolution of the motion pictures. We move from mute to sound, from black-and-white to color, through various genres and styles. All the aspects are taken into consideration: the historical context, the fashion, the star system and the unhappy ending to watching films in movie theaters. Written by 1felco
