I know in today's world, this would be seen as very politically incorrect, but at the time, I think they were trying to create a humorous short using unique effects.It's really cool and looks so good, that many folks don't trust that it's from 1907. They think it's a modern piece that has been edited to look old.It is a very intelligent method create the viewer think that they are seeing nice tricks. Even in today's technological world, this technique is still used in some situations as an effect. Very impressive.It's a gotta see.
Before I watched this trick movie by Segundo do Chomon on the "Saved from the Flames" DVD collection, I did read some of the comments presented here so I knew about the floor-disguised-as-wall illusion. Still, it's quite impressive to see these kids and adults giving the impression they're doing unusual acrobatics in front of an audience supposedly watching this in a theater. The stencil-colors looked cute nice as well. I also learned from the another comments that these were Caucasians made up to look Japanese which I wouldn't have noticed by myself. So, no, I didn't search the characterizations to be offensive since it's just them doing "acrobatics". So on that note, I suggest Kiriki, Japanese Acrobats.
This film, "Kiri-Kis", by Segundo de Chomón, was included in the three DVD set "Saved From the Flames"--a collection of mostly ephemeral films that have managed to avoid turning to powder, catching fire or melting--something that usually happened with the nitrate movie stock used up through the 1950s.Unlike most of the another 54 movies from the set, this one is now a fragment--or at least it was. I was impressed by the conservators that took a fragment of the original hand-colored movie and re-created the whole movie by using a black & white copy and coloring to match the original fragment! Bless these people for going to all this trouble! The movie consists of French people dressed up as Japanese acrobats--complete with skin-wigs and a Japanese topknot hairstyle. When they appear on stage, they do lots of impossible acrobatics--all apparently done by now filming the actors on their backs and the camera suspended above them! This is nice movie work for 1907 and it is well worth your time.
