Discover the crazy rots of science fiction films in a tented fairground cinema

Crazy Cinématographe for Kids pitches its tent in the courtyard of the Capucin Theatre once again. This year, it pays tribute to the famous film magician and inventor of cinematic special effects, Georges Méliès, and takes viewers on a wild ride to the beginnings of science fiction cinema, inspired by the incredible worlds of Jules Verne. A unique introduction to the art of silent film, complete with film narrator and piano accompaniment.

Crazy Cinématographe is a playful, educational media project which brings the magic and poetry of cinema’s early days back to life. An extraordinary journey takes viewers back in time to experience the origins of film as an art form. The performance will be animated by a storyteller who will comment on the film and explain the development of early film screening to the young audience . Audiences will watch a projectionist at work while a pianist plays live music to set the mood. Together with a foley artist, they re-enact a film screening from bygone days and deliver a special experience for children.
