    Summary: 
    With original archive footage, film excerpts and reconstructions, the life and career of Georges Méliès, who elaborated most of the techniques that have been used throughout the century. Including original archive footage, film excerpts and reconstructions, this extraordinary documentary retraces the life and career of Georges Méliès, who visualized and elaborated most of the techniques that have been used throughout the century (special effects, trucquage, coloring, backdrops and costumes). Georges Méliès is the ancestor of Disney, Spielberg and Lucas. All at once author, producer, director and decorator, he is the legendary pioneer of the cinematographic show.
