After the Ball (French: Après le bal) is a short French silent film created and released in 1897 and directed by Georges Méliès.

It starred Jehanne d'Alcy - Méliès' future wife, and Jane Brady.

The film's plot is a one minute scene of a servant bathing a woman, along with the scenarios before and after as the servant is helping her get undressed while revealing a few layers of clothing, bathing her, and finally covering and drying her with a robe. This is the earliest film to show nudity.[2]
