The Miller and the Sweep

Sección Trasfoco: The wind

After milling his sack of flour, a man comes out of a big windmill whose large sails are turning constantly at great speed; as he walks away he bumps into a chimney sweep carrying a sack of soot who is heading towards the mill. The two start fighting with their respective sacks until the miller is covered with soot and the chimney sweep is covered with flour. One of the first films in the history of cinema, it is a seamless fusion of comedy and a fascination with the visual image.
