Les Kiriki – Japanese Acrobats

Unreal skills from this vintage Japanese acrobats clip.
😉

From ManiacWorld:
There’s stepping into the way-back machine, and then there’s Les Kiriki: Acrobates Japonaises, a goofy little short clip from 1907. French director Segundo de Chomón directed some 125 short films between 1902 and 1917, specializing in the wierd and the wonderful.

  1. Excellent!!
    This reminds me the work of Mr Découflé…
    I believe he did something similar in one of his productions…
    ^^

  2. Tony, most of this video is shot from above, looking straight down at the performers. They are lying on the floor.
