December 28, 1895, has always been told as a revolutionary date: that of the invention of cinema. However, a cinematographic eye” already existed before the arrival of the Lumière brothers’ Cinématographe. It awakened, progressively, to give birth to the spectator that we are today, at the turn of the 20th century in Paris. Between the advent of the modern city, exchanges between painting, photography and animated images, the film proposes to relive the birth of the modern eye.
