Louis Lumière directed and produced Snowball Fight in 1896, a short black-and-white silent documentary film centered around a pathway made through a snow-covered city street. As the title suggests, several men and women line both sides of the street and engage in a snowball fight. A cyclist rides towards the fight, and is shortly hit by a few snowballs as he approaches.

As the cyclist continues riding towards the snowball-armed melee, he’s struck successively by several nearby participants as he comes between them, losing control of his bicycle and then proceeding to fall to the ground. It was originally filmed in Lyon, France, with a cinématographe, an all-in-one camera, which also functioned as a film projector and developer. The film was shot on 35mm format with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1.
