  • 19h30: Visit of the exhibition - Charlot as a critical observer of his time; welcome party

  • 20h30: Charlot et le chronomètre (Twenty minutes Of Love, 1914) Madame Charlot (A Busy Day, 1914).

Two of Charlie Chaplin’s early short films featuring a largely unknown Charlot to be followed by Les Temps modernes (Modern Times, 1936)

As a satire of assembly line work and a denunciation of unemployment and living conditions of a great number of western people during the Great Depression, the theme of the film is timeless and so are Charlot’s acting and the novel approach to making movies.
