The original hand-painted color version of Georges Melies' masterpiece, A Trip to the Moon (1902), to home video 110 years after its first release. Georges Melies (one of the celebrated heroes of Martin Scorsese's Hugo), was a master of cinematic invention and enchantment. A Trip to the Moon also features The Extraordinary Voyage, a fascinating documentary directed by Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange about the life of Georges Melies and the magic of film history and preservation. The material for A Trip to the Moon is sourced from a restored color version that had been considered lost for several decades and is presented with an original soundtrack by the French band AIR. The Extraordinary Voyage (2011) chronicles the journey of A Trip to the Moon from the fantastical Melies' production in 1902 to the astonishing rediscovery of a nitrate print in color in 1993, to the premiere of the new restoration on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival in 2011.
