David Lynch's 52 second film


Lumière and Company is a 1995 movie where more than 40 directors were invited to make a short film using the Lumière brothers' original cinématographe hand-cranked camera invented in the 1890s. Each short had to be less than 52 seconds long without synchronized sound and be made in fewer than three takes. All editing, of course, wa done in-camera. The final cut included works by Wim Wenders, Peter Greenaway, John Boorman, Merchant & Ivory, and many others. Here is David Lynch's contribution to the project.
