Arthème decides to become a film projectionist. That can’t be difficult, can it?

Reason of Choice

Artheme gives an impression how it was to go to the movies around 1910. It’s shows the work of a projector, which sort of films were shown, and with what sort of company (audience, fireman and policeman, musicians). It is a slapstick movie, so very attractive for younger students.

Artheme is part of Film Jewels Part 1: a film compilation about cinema in the early days.
