The cinematography era began with the creation of the first short documentary film in the world by the Lumiere brothers. The first film was titled Workers Leaving the Lumiere’s Factory and only lasted a few seconds. In addition, the story only describes factory workers returning and leaving their workplaces at the Lumiere factory. Even so this film is recorded in history as the first film that aired and played on Boulevard des Capucines in the city of Paris, France. The screening date for the film on December 28, 1895 was then set as the birth date of cinematography.
