For all public from 6, 1h15

From Eisenstein to Tod Browning, from Tarzan to Luis Buñuel, Arfi enjoys flirting with silent movies… This time, Arfi’s choice has fallen on some famous short films from the Golden Age of burlesque. With its colourful palette, the Workshop de Lyon illustrates an hour-long CineFun-concert. On the programme:

‘The Blacksmith’ by Buster Keaton (1922) – The horseshoe sign over the forge causes catastrophe after catastrophe, and Keaton makes the most of the situation!

‘The Boxer’ by Charlie Chaplin (1915) – Cigarette butt, stick, old boots: we have all recognised the edgy little man with a moustache entering the ring. It’s going to be one hell of a fight… Sparks are ready to fly!

‘Neighbours’ by Buster Keaton (1921) – A straight face, an impassive face, a head for heights, dizziness, vertigo!

‘An Eye for an Eye’ by Laurel and Hardy (1929) – Selling Christmas trees in the middle of August? Stan and Ollie have a go. An escalation, followed by a veritable avalanche of gags!
