Reverse on-screen motion has been used since the dawn of cinema.

Reverse video (or invert video or inverse video or reverse screen) is a computer display technique whereby the background and text color values are inverted. On older computers, displays were usually designed to display text on a black background by default.

While maintaining the sense of forward motion through storytelling, filmmakers have used the power of editing to jump their scenes and sequences forward and backward across time and make it feel totally natural. This continuity through narrative has permitted filmmakers to reverse entire storylines and still maintain clarity.
