Il Cinema Ritrovato Kids. Destination Moon

Half a century ago man set foot on the moon’s surface for the first time. On 20 July 1969, millions of people, with their eyes glued to television screens in homes or on the streets, simultaneously watching the same succession of live images, held their breath together for those few crucial moments of history. They were both witnesses and participants in an event that would change the way we perceive the world and the space beyond it: suddenly everything was possible and within reach.
But man’s journey to the moon began centuries earlier, taking on a variety of forms in the different works devoted to our satellite and the dream of making that Promethean flight. A source of inspiration for writers, artists and filmmakers, the moon has never ceased to enchant audiences and readers of every era. We are dedicating a selection of short films ranging from early cinema to animated adventures to the moon and the most diverse and extravagant ways imagined of reaching it: from Méliès’ iconic Voyage dans la lune, screened in a restored version with live musical accompaniment, to Tintin, the young Belgian reporter, who in 1954 landed on the moon in a celebrated series of drawings by Hergé.
