It was the first blockbuster in the history of cinema.

Now the 1902 silent movie A Trip to the Moon by the French film-maker Georges Melies has been restored in one of the most complex and ambitious movie projects ever.

The film also has been given an original new soundtrack by the French electronica band Air.
