About Right in the Eye
A live trio of French musicians intertwine playful modern compositions and the fantasy of the legendary filmmaker Georges Méliès, one of cinema’s founding fathers and the inventor of special effects. French composer Jean-François Alcoléa and his fellow musicians use sound and image to create a universe as inventive as the filmmaker’s creations were.

It is at once inventive, elegant and moving.
—Chronique, Festival OFF d’Avignon

Creatively intelligent. All the sounds and music brought Georges Méliès’ films to life.
—Houstonian
