Over one hundred years of dreams through cinema, Eric Lange and Serge Bromberg tell the story of the history of sound and color on the screen in two documentaries: A la recherche du son / In Search of Sound and Un rêve en couleurs / A Dream in Colors. Contrary to popular belief, cinema did not become sonorous 1927 with the premiere of the Warner Bros. production The Jazz Singer and colorful over night with the first Technicolor feature film Becky Sharp from 1935. Quite the contrary it's a long and adventurous story whose origins go back way beyond the birth of cinema. We learn about films rented with a singer, handcolored films, sound effects machines, bizarre color effects and crazy inventors as well as uncanny personalities, who all contributed in their own way to the history of film. Beside the two documentaries the 2-disc DVD offers 35 supplemental features with incredible and unknown images and sounds.
