Silent films’ crazy roots in a tented fairground cinema

The crazy world of the cinematograph is back for the tenth edition and the Crazy Cinématographe pitches its tent once more in the courtyard of the Capuchin theatre. This year, a well-balanced cocktail of spectacular films brings the old fairground film tradition back to life, evoking the quaint charm of a bygone area of cinema, full of magical fairy films, zany sketches and surprising special effects. For this Magical Mystery Tour an astounding mix of fairground attractions, ludicrous artists and film magicians will fill the screen of the small tent of the Cinémathèque. As always, Fränz the storyteller and Hughes, the pianist, will accompany the short film programme from the Belle Époque period and remind us that silent film was never truly silent. Together with the duo, participants will travel through time and immerse themselves in the world of silent cinema.

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 the 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 to the young audience the development of an early film screening. Audiences can 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.
