Were you enchanted by the 2011 silent film "The Artist?" Did you find your imagination sparked by the novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" or the Academy Award-winning film "Hugo?" Then the International Film Series’ presentation of the 1902 silent film "A Trip to the Moon" is for you!
A Trip to the Moon is considered a timeless masterpiece of French filmmaker George Méliès. The film tells the story of an expedition of astronomers to the moon and the mysteries they discover. "The Extraordinary Voyage," which gives a behind the scenes account of the making of A Trip to the Moon and its restoration, will also be shown.
Make your own expedition to room 305 of the Weinberg Memorial Library at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, for this free screening. Professor Kevin Norris will lead a discussion following the film.
