Punto de Vista 2021 Winners
Direction: Association frères Lumière
Another air jewel from the Lumière brothers, this time with the camera going up in the air in the basket of a hot-air balloon. The opposing shot to this film appears in the catalogue of the film factory in Lyon, the same flight but filmed from the ground, of which only a photograph has been preserved: Départ d’une montgolfière (avec une acrobate pendue par les mains), Vue N° 998. The seventh art is christened in the air with an image of a lad who moves away from the ground.
