A 3D Documentary Shot in Basque Country (France) in 1936 Viewed "As Intended by Louis Lumière"
The "Euskadi" documentary was shot by René Le Hénaff with an anaglyph stereoscopic camera rig on the west coast of France in 1936. After the Bilbao festivel, it was projected last Friday in Bayonne as the master himself (Louis Lumière) did it at the time. The audience watched the movie with good old cardboard red/cyan glasses. What makes "Euskadi" special is that it was shot and featured only one year after Louis Lumière presented its new anaglyph cinema invention at the Académie des Sciences in Paris. The movie was presented in 3D at the Olympia movie theatre in Paris in 1937. Details and trailer here under.

Help us Restore "September Storm 3D", a lost 3D movie
We need your help to SAVE SEPTEMBER STORM!
SEPTEMBER STORM is considered one of the "lost" 3D features of the golden age of 3D stereoscopic cinema. Shot in 1959, it was the last of the 3D movies to be filmed in the 1950s, and is most notable for being filmed in Stereo-Vision (utilizing the Natural Vision 3D camera rig) and in CinemaScope. SEPTEMBER STORM hasn't been seen in it's intended 3D and widescreen format since it's initial theatrical release in 1960, and the surviving film elements are deteriorating. If a digital restoration of the stereoscopic anamorphic version isn't done soon, it is at risk of being lost forever. Your donation to this Kickstarter campaign will help save this important motion picture so that it can be seen by future generations of movie fans.
