DescriptionIn keeping with our principal WEP theme of light we are presenting a session of "Movies @ WEP" featuring a wide array of classic and contemporary movies. Hugo Cabret (2011): Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton. This movie is a tribute to the French illusionist and filmmaker Georges Melies, famous for leading many technical and narrative developments in the earliest days of cinema. G. Melies, a prolific innovator in the use of special effects, accidentally discovered the substitution stop trick in 1896, and was one of the first filmmakers to use multiple exposures, time-lapse photography, dissolves, and hand-painted color in his work. Because of his ability to seemingly manipulate and transform reality through cinematography, G. Melies is sometimes referred to as the first "Cinemagician".
