‪A Trip to the Moon / Le Voyage dans la lune - 1902‬

It is considered to be the first science fiction film of all time and was written and directed by the French illusionist and filmmaker Georges Méliès, with the assistance of his brother Gaston.

In addition to elaborate sets they made use of animation and special effects to create this iconic piece.

To the modern viewer it may appear to resemble children´s theatre, rather than a science fiction film, but if one considers the year it was made and the lack of previous examples, it is truly a considerable achievement.
