Summary One of cinema's most unforgettable images is that of the man in the moon being poked in the eye by a rocket ship. Georges Melies was the creator of that image, and his Trip to the Moon was released in 1902. This fascinating documentary charts Melies's career and the history of silent cinema alongside the painstaking restoration of the only known hand-coloured film print of Trip to the Moon. Interviews with some of contemporary cinema's most imaginative filmmakers attest to Melies' enduring significance
