"The genesis of the motion picture medium is recreated in this collection of films from cinema's formative period. More than crucial historical artifacts, these films reveal the foundation from which the styles and stories of the contemporary cinema would later arise. An animated rendering of Eadweard Muybridge's primitive motion studies (1877-85) begins the program, immediately defining the compound appeal of cinema as both a scientific marvel and sensational popular entertainment. This is followed by the works of Louis and Auguste Lumière."--Publisher

A lively tip of the hat to the pioneers of the moving picture, this commemoration of the Centenial of the Lumiere Brothers' first "motion picture" is an anthology of short pieces by 40 contemporary filmmakers, {u0097}including Peter Greenaway, Spike Lee, David Lynch, Wim Wenders, and Zhang Yimou. They would make their own "Lumiere" films with a restored camera that once belonged to the Lumiere brothers. The filmmakers were required to work according to the same conditions under which the Lumieres made their films one hundred years ago: the sequence could not exceed the 52 seconds of film, could not use sound, and could not be artificially lit. Each director offers their own signature styles in their films, and in interviews offers their impressions on films and filmmaking

Workers leaving the Lumière Factory, The gardener, Arrival of a train at La Ciot Station and many more are on display in Lumière's first picture show; a collection of firsts from the filmakers that started a business of film production, exhibition and distribution. The acknowledged birth of film history was December 28, 1895 when the first paying audience gathered at the Grand Cafè on Boulevard des Capucines, Paris, for a performance of films on the Cinèmatographe of brothers Louis and Auguste Lumière. This program is mostly reproduced from a collection of original Lumiere films unearthed in 1972 from a basement storage area in the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History. They were copied using an original Cinèmatographe as a printer. The program includes twenty films from 1895-97 taken in France, four special films that were hand-colored one frame at a time, and thirteen films taken in Washington, Chicago and New York City during 1896-97 in the United States
