Two Japanese acrobats star in this short film by Thomas Edison

Marvel at this short film that inventor and film pioneer Thomas Edison created back in 1904!

Close to seven years after he received a patent for the Kinetograph, the first motion picture camera, Thomas Edison filmed this untitled feature starring two unidentified Japanese men, a juggler and his assistant. According to an article by AnOther, Edison brought them to his studio in New York City just to record this video. Incidentally, this entertaining short is set to celebrate its 110th anniversary this April 29! Amazing, isn’t it?

All information in this article were sourced from AnOther. Additional information about the Kinetograph were sourced from History.
