This is most likely part of a project begun in 1943 under the title Le Château des rêves (Castle of Dreams). The Magic Flute was intended to be accompanied by selected sound excerpts from the Mozart opera of the same name. This fragment was completed in the second half of the 1950s and was never distributed. It was filmed in the NEGAVISION format – filmed as a positive and screened as a negative.

“The word ‘negative’ has a pejorative connotation for many people. But if we adhere strictly to the photographic definition, then it’s not exactly negative images, but rather positive duplicates. Therefore I find it more appropriate to call this new approach ‘negavision’.” Eugène Deslaw
