IMAX documentary

This historical overview of special effects used in movies begins at the beginning: movies use our retained perception to create the impression of movement itself. But movie makers have gone way beyond that and now can “fool” us into to seeing things not as they are, but as they want us to see them.

Making use of several films including Star Wars and Independence Day we get to see what goes on behind the scenes to create the illusions. Fascinating stuff for any movie buff.
