Hundred Year Old Films for Pera Museum's 10th Year Fantasia of Color

In 2015, EYE published Fantasia of Color in Early Cinema, based entirely on its own archival holdings. Hundreds of colorful frames from more than 60 films (1897-1915) were selected to be included in this book about fairy-tale, dream, metamorphosis and voyage.
