1895. Workers Leaving The Lumière Factory in Lyon France is a French black-and-white short silent documentary film directed and produced by Louis Lumière. It is often referred to as the first real motion picture ever made, although Louis Le Prince's 1888 Roundhay Garden Scene pre-dated it by seven years. It was filmed by the Cinématographe, an all-in-one camera, which also serves as a film projector and developer. This Lumière movie was made in 35 mm film format with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and at a speed of 16 frames per second. At that rate, the 17 meters of film length provided a duration of 46 seconds, holding a total of 800 frames. Release date March 22, 1895.
