IV. Reading Comprehension (National Examination Format)
Teacher:  As we have already said the first men to demonstrate the first film were the Lumiere brothers.
1. Read the text “How It All Began” on your Activity Sheets (Activity 2, Task 1)
(Приложение 1) and say how the brothers called their device for the demonstration of films.

Auguste and Louis Lumiere are famous for the world’s first public film demonstration on December 28, 1895. The showing of ten short films lasting only twenty minutes in total was held in the Grand Café on the Boulevard des Capucines in Paris and would be the very first public demonstration of their device they called the Cinematograph which effectively functioned as camera, projector and printer all in one. Their work consisted mainly of moving images from scenes of everyday life. Ironically, as we look back in retrospect, in comparison to what film has developed into today, the Lumiere brothers believed it to be a medium without a future. They suspected that people would get bored of images that they could just as easily see by walking out into the street. However, their film sequence of a train pulling into the station reportedly had audiences screaming and ducking for cover as they believed that the train itself was about to plow into the theatre.
Born in the Haute-Saone District in1862 and 1864, with Auguste being the elder, the Lumiere family eventually settled in Lyon in 1870 where the brothers attended the largest technical school. Their father Antoine ran a photographic firm and both brothers worked for him: Louis as a physicist and Auguste as a manager. Louis made some improvements to the still-photograph process which was a major step towards moving image. Later the brothers patented a number of significant processes leading up to their first camera.
The Lumiere brothers have shot 1,425 different short films. Their first films are often called the primitive documentaries. The brothers also made the first steps towards comedy films.
