The Extraordinary Voyage is an engaging documentary about the films of Georges Melies and the story of the nearly impossible task of restoring a “decomposed” nitrate hand coloured copy of his best known film Le Voyage dans la lune (1902). A fascinating technical achievement that would undoubtedly have amazed Melies, the restoration of this extraordinary film is a remarkably interesting story in itself (Klaus Ming April 2017).
