Loie Fuller – Danse Serpentine by the Lumière Brothers (1896)

7 Jan

This is the earliest psychedelic film that I am aware of (1896!) featuring the legendary dancer and Art Noveau icon Loie Fuller. The film was made by the Lumiere Brothers, who were among the earliest pioneers of cinema, which means psychedelic visuals were there from the very start.

Here’s a short video about Loie. What a goddess!
