filmmaker: Jaco Van Dormael
A short film using the original camera invented by the Lumiere Brothers in 1895. Made by Jaco Van Dormael, the director of “The Eighth Day”, this romantic short stars Pascal Duquenne and Michele Maes.
In 1995, Van Dormael participated in the 1995 project Lumière et compagnie (Lumière and Company). This work is an anthology of very short works (on average 50–60 seconds) contributed by international film directors in which each used the original Auguste and Louis Lumière’s motion picture camera to make his film. The Kiss is the 52-second film made by director Jaco Van Dormael featuring actor Pascal Duquenne.
