The beginnings of cinematic history are unveiled through examples in Landmarks of Early Film, Vol. 1. This edition covers the very first film productions from 1894 through 1913, with silent film examples by French, Italian, and American filmmakers and more. While most of the movies of the time were shot in black-and-white, one example of a hand-tinted print is included in this collection of films that began to shape the growing industry of filmmaking. The video covers the earliest of short film experiments through the advent of the rising importance of storytelling methods in the success of movies as entertainment.
