A 3D Documentary Shot in Basque Country (France) in 1936 Viewed "As Intended by Louis Lumière"
The "Euskadi" documentary was shot by René Le Hénaff with an anaglyph stereoscopic camera rig on the west coast of France in 1936. After the Bilbao festivel, it was projected last Friday in Bayonne as the master himself (Louis Lumière) did it at the time. The audience watched the movie with good old cardboard red/cyan glasses. What makes "Euskadi" special is that it was shot and featured only one year after Louis Lumière presented its new anaglyph cinema invention at the Académie des Sciences in Paris. The movie was presented in 3D at the Olympia movie theatre in Paris in 1937. Details and trailer here under.
Josu Martinez, a researcher from the Basque country University discovered the movie in the CNC (Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée) archives. Josu is on Twitter. The author, René Le Hénaff is on IMDB. He died in 2005 (age 104).
