This is David Lynch’s 55 second short filmed with an original Lumiere camera. 40 international directors were asked to make a short film, all using the original Cinematographe invented by the Lumière Brothers, working under conditions similar to those of 1895.
There were three rules:
(1) The film could be no longer than 52 seconds,
(2) no synchronized sound was permitted, and
(3) no more than three takes.

All the effects are in-camera and there is no cutting for scenes.
