Dabbling in film does not remain on the ground. In addition to the exit of workers and the arrival of trains, the creators of this “invention without a future” also film the first steps to travel through the air. Aboard his device, the French-Brazilian, Alberto Santos-Dumont, creator of the dirigible balloon and the first man to have three diplomas of the air: balloon, zeppelin, aeroplane. Behind the camera, one of the operators at the Lumière factory. New born film and aviation, at the beginning of the century, looking at each other strangely.
