Actualities and Lumière travels

by Kate Fortmueller

The Lumière Brothers sent filmmakers around the world (often to the French colonies) to film life outside of France. This film features a Muslim prayer. Like many Lumière and Edison films this film features an action that is repeated multiple times.  Unlike many of the Edison films, which feature the action in the center of the frame, this subject of this film is off center and occasionally outside of the frame.
