Extraordinary Voyage

The miraculous discovery of a hand-colored print of the world-famous TRIP TO THE MOON, the 1902 Georges Melies film, that took 12 years to restore, and opened the Cannes Film Festival in May 2011. The story of this film, from its shooting more than a century ago to its spectacular revival in 2011, is the subject of THE EXTRAORDINARY VOYAGE, the film Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange just completed, which will world premiere at Moma, in New York, November 11, at 7pm, along with the George Melies film with a new spectacular sound track by French group AIR.

Jacky in the Kingdom of Women

Imagine a world where women call the shots, a world where women fight the wars, run the government, have the illustrious careers, and hold all the important positions of power. Now imagine being a man in that world. That man is 20 year old Jacky, and that fabled world is the Republic of Bubunne, a totalitarian matriarchy where men, wearing chadors and bejeweled dog collars, are relegated to lives of domestic servitude. Like all members of Bubunne’s downtrodden sex, Jacky dreams of marrying up. All the way up. He’s got his sights set on the Colonel, daughter of the supreme leader. But if he is ever going to make beautiful daughters with her, he first has to finagle his way into the Presidential Ball. [Synopsis courtesy of COLCOA]
