Georges Méliès was one of the most prolific early filmmakers. He and his collaborators produced more than 520 short films in France between 1896 and 1913. In his March 3rd presentation, Matthew Solomon discussed  Méliès’ extraordinary career as a magician, caricaturist, and filmmaker, while considering his relationship to the nineteenth-century tradition of science fiction and the Incoherent art movement. The presentation included screenings of two of Méliès’ fantastic voyage films: A Trip to the Moon (1902) and An Impossible Voyage (1904).
