'Trick of the Light' chronicles the story of the Skladanowsky brothers who invented a method for projecting moving images which they called a Bioscope, only to be pipped at the post by the Lumiere siblings with their Cinematographie. Wenders weaves together re-enacted footage of the brothers with an interview with one of the brother's daughters.
