Trick of the Light (Die Gebrüder Skladanowsky)
Directed by Wim Wenders along with 19 students from the Munich Film Academy, the film recreates the exploits of the Brothers Skladanowsky, three fairground showmen/inventors who created their own movie camera at the same time as the Lumieres and Edison were working on their inventions. The footage is shot with a 1920s handcranking camera, in the style of silent films.
