New York, descente des voyageurs du pont de Brooklyn
26 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

New York, descente des voyageurs du pont de Brooklyn (1896)

When the Lumiere Brothers brought their cameras to America they spent a lot of time in and around New York City train stations. This one here has the camera placed on a street where we see people leaving the train station, walking down some stairs and through the streets. As I've said throughout many of these early films, there's obviously nothing ground-breaking here but if you're a fan of these type of actuality films then you're bound to enjoy this one. The cinematography is extremely good and I'd argue that you really get a great look at a simple moment in time. I'm sure the people walking around here never would have imagined that someone would be watching them well over a hundred years later.
