    • Synopsis
    • Directed by Wim Wenders along with 19 students from the Munich Film Academy, the film reappraises the importance of the Skladanowsky Brothers, one of the pioneers of early cinema. The German-born duo invented the “bioskop”, an early version of the film projector, at the same time as the Lumiere Brothers in France and Edison in America, and thereby co-invented “moving pictures”.
