The two flowing rivers of the birth of film are considered to be Thomas Edison and Louis and Auguste Lumiere.

The Lumieres were Grand Documentarians, taking to the Parisian streets with their cinematographe and photographing everyday occurrences, displaying a joy in movement and commonplace realities, celebrating the mundane as a lifeforce.
