Once upon a time, during the belle époque in turn-of-the-century Paris, a short-lived film form called 'scènes de feeries' ('fairy films') were produced in great number by the Pathé Frères company. In jewel-like colours the films recreated the theatrical spectacles of the age with their fantastical settings, dancing girls, mythical beasts, supernatural beings and a plethora of stage illusion enhanced by the trickery of the new medium of film. Made to appeal to young and old spectators alike, these gorgeous films offer modern audiences a fascinating glimpse into the magical world of the nineteen-century theatre.

These breathtaking films are released here with newly-commissioned soundtracks composed by experimental artists from the leading British independent label Touch, including Chris Watson, Fennesz, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Ryoji Ikeda, Philip Jeck, and BJNilsen amongst others.
  • Additional short films from the era
  • All-new scores, featuring leading experimental composers such as Chris Watson, Philip Jeck and Fennesz
  • Extensive illustrated booklet with contributions from silent cinema experts, including BFI Curator Bryony Dixon
