EP. 205.1 — A Trip to the Moon

Amy & Paul set a course for 1902’s seminal space short A Trip To The Moon (aka Le Voyage dans la Lune)! They dissect it as a work of imperialist satire, learn more about director Georges Méliès, and listen to a modern score made for the film by Air. Plus: Which films will we cover for the rest of our space series?

Next week our galactic trip continues with Galaxy Quest!
