They already have light in their name, they based their invention on light, and yet they did not believe in its bright future. The cinematograph was supposed to serve science, today it is mainly about entertainment. "They gave the world the world," writes director and historian Bertrand Tavernier, who participated in the film. Film by Thierry Frémaux presents a collection of 108 short, digitally restored films (each 50 seconds long) by the Lumière brothers, which sheds light on the emergence of the film medium and the rise of the modern age at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.
