Storyline

The 1800's were a time of invention and exploration. Science, chemistry and ingenuity were rapidly changing the way we lived. Inventors were racing to develop the unimaginable; from the light bulb, to the telephone, to the printing press. It was also the beginning of motion pictures. In the early 1890's Thomas Edison had the edge over all inventors with his latest invention: The Kinetiscope; 'a moving picture viewing machine.' The device, however, could only be viewed by one person at a time. This story focuses on two brothers, Auguste & Louis, a pair of young inventors who dream of making images big enough for the whole world to see. Based on a true story, La Premiere tells the exciting tale of the invention of cinema as we know it. A story about possibility and believing that with hard work and vision, you can make the impossible possible. Written by Anonymous
