The kingdom of fairies star
Short film, fantasy, by Georges Méliès, France, 1903.
Freely adapted from La Biche au Bois, a popular tale by the Goignard brothers, and from "Sleeping Beauty". Georges Méliès plays Prince Bel-Azor. Most of the film was shot indoors, while the final scene of the wedding procession was shot outdoors in Méliès' garden. Film full of primitive special effects: stage machinery, suggestive scenographies, miniature models, pyrotechnic fires, montage cuts, overlaps and fades.
