Best Documentary Movies of 1916 : Budapest


0.0/10 IMDB

The earliest surviving film featuring the Hungarian capital. The only information it came with, from the Austrian film archive, is that it was shot in 1916. Apart from the Sió fountains of Városliget featured in the opening sequences, all other monuments can still be visited today. The last reel is probably lost.

The Cornish Riviera

0.0/10 IMDB

Sail away to a bygone Cornwall - from Looe to Land's End by way of Polperro's weathered fishermen, Falmouth's picturesque harbour, and Newquay's rocky shores. Lingering on poetic details, this wistful coastal travelogue portrays a county bursting with rustic charm: ancient mariners, a St Ives artist, children clambering barefoot over the skeleton of a wrecked ship. Cornwall's popular image hasn't changed too much since. It's 1916, and as the First World War rages across the channel, conscription is introduced in Britain. Yet these Cornish village harboursides are busy with sailors and fishermen, their occupations reserved from the draft.
