Since it made its entry into human history back in 1875, cinema became a perfect method for telling stories. It started by reflecting the society of the moment and the mysteries that that world hid through projections like Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station and Workers Leaving The Lumière Factory in Lyon, of the Lumière brothers. Soon, filmmakers like Georges Méliès and later Fritz Lang, among others, began to create fiction in movies, taking their gaze to a future that only existed in their minds.
Perhaps it was the uncertainty of the days that were about to come that gave the cinema its greatest source of inspiration: history. Battles where the heroes shed their blood, forbidden loves that staggered empires and tragedies that remain in the memory are some of the examples that inspired great fiction stories. The cinema has the ability to exalt and appeal to the feelings of its viewers and the filmmakers have managed to portray almost all the key moments in the history of humanity no matter where they happened or how long ago.
