Plot Summary: On March 14, 1932, an American, George Eastman, acknowledged his wishes about the disposal of his property in the presence of his lawyer. Shortly after the lawyer left, he shot himself to death. The true inventor of the movies was Louis Amie Augustine Le Prince. On September 16th, 1890, after visiting his siblings in Dijon, he got on a train going back to Paris and nobody ever saw him again. Neither his body, nor his luggage were ever found. And, the Great "Grand" George Melies. Melies produced a staggering 4000 films between 1896 and 1914. In the 1930 Melies was sighted at a kiosk in the Montparnasse station with his second wife. He was making a living by selling souvenirs. He died on June 21st, 1938. This is the ominous shadow creeping up behind the history of motion pictures ... Talking Head, directed by Rei Maruwa.
