A Trip to the Moon (Georges Méliès)
A Trip to the Moon or Le Voyage dans la Lune is one of the films featured in Silentyarn.
For a full description of the movie, check out this link. This is said to be based from Jules Verne's From Earth to the Moon and Around the Moon. This film is about astronomers who traveled to the moon and explored it. While on the surface of the moon, they encountered lunar people called Selenites who captured them but the astronomers were able to escape and fly back to Earth bringing with them a Selenite captive.
This film was created by Georges Jean Melies.
He was a Frenchman born in 1861. As an illusionist, he combined that in his filmmaking techniques. Because of that, he is known as the first Cinemagician. He got that name because he was one of the first users of multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted color.
Other films of Georges-Melies include:
The Astronomers Dream
After the Ball
Ben Kingsley portrayed George Melies in the movie Hugo by Martin Scorsese.
