Expérience du ballon dirigeable, M= Santos-Dumont: II

Year1901 Duration1 min. DirectorAssociation frères Lumière

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.
