Director: various filmmakers (1897-1902)
Runtime: 52 mins
Language: Silent with English intertitles
The Mutoscope and Biograph Collection is the oldest film collection held at Eye Filmmuseum. It includes over 200 films, most of which were made in Europe between 1897 and 1902. This constitutes the largest existing collection of Mutoscope and Biograph films surviving in the world, photographed with the unique large format 68mm Mutograph camera, which provided extraordinarily high-resolution images – some of the richest and sharpest images that film can achieve.
This compilation of newly restored time capsules from 120 years ago showcases the first years of filmmaking. The Brilliant Biograph won ‘Best Archival Restoration and Preservation Project’ at the 2021 FOCAL International Awards.
Reciprocal 2023 runs from 2 – 25 June 2023. See the full programme here.
