The great train robbery by Edwin S Porter( Visual )

The genesis of the motion picture medium is vividly recreated in this unprecedented collection of the cinema's formative works. 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, who offer cinematic glimpses of such commonplace sights as children quarreling, a lion in a zoo or the feeding of poultry. As for more obvious fictions there is the myth-making of Edwin S. Porter's seminal The great train robbery (1903) and the pictorial splendor of Ferdinand Zecca's The Golden Beetle (1907), both presented in mint condition prints with the original hand-tinting, as well as Georges Méliès' extravagant A trip to the moon (1902, complete with narration penned by the director, intended to accompany its performance). The low art origins of the cinema are represented in some of Thomas Edison's Kinetoscopes (1894-97, serpentine dances, a cockfight, a bedroom full of seminary girls engaged in a pillow fight and the notorious first screen kiss) and a collection of mechanized peep shows from American Mutoscope and Biograph, whose burlesque origins are free from social or aesthetic pretense, being designed solely for titillation and amusement. When social crusaders spoke of the evils of film, this is what they had in mind

Eine Oscar-Nominierung für "Sophie Scholl - Die letzten Tage", Preise auf internationalen Filmfestivals wie der Berlinale für "Requiem" und "Das Leben der Anderen", Erfolge an der Kinokasse für "Die weiße Massai" - der deutsche Film bewegt sich auf einem Niveau, von dem er jahrelang nur träumen konnte. Gab es vor zehn Jahren über den deutschen Film noch viel zu meckern, so kann man heute nur feststellen: Das deutsche Kino ist zur Zeit das, was es immer sein wollte: Eine Marke, und zwar eine Marke, die über die Landesgrenzen hinaus ernst genommen wird
