That's pretty much what this movie is: two children who are suppose to be dancing an Italian folk dance for pioneering German film producer-director-cameraman-inventor Max Skladanowsky and his brother Emil.
There are a bunch of people with good claims towards inventing the movies as we know them. There's the Lumieres in France, and Edison's lab in the US under the supervision of J. Stuart Blackton. Max Skladanowsky is Germany's entry in the race; his Bioscop was used to display moving pictures to an audience on November 1, 1895, more than a month earlier than the Lumieres' first show in Paris. He lost interest and by the start of the new century was back to work in two allied fields: magic lanterns and flip books. He died in 1939, 76 years old.
