LOITERING WITHOUT INTENT
Music composed and conducted by Carl Davis for Chaplin's Mutual Films, 1916-1917
with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and The Wihan Quartet
In 2003 and 2004 the British Film Institute released in two volumes, Charlie Chaplin’s twelve comedy shorts, created by him for the Mutual Film Corporation in 1916 and 1917. This CD is Carl Davis’s choice of music, composed by him for Charlie’s Mutuals as they came to be known as, after the company that produced them.
Slapstick Festival’s annual celebration of silent comedy in Bristol returns to Colston Hall for a 12th year, with a special screening of Charlie Chaplin’s masterpiece, ‘The Kid’, on Friday, 22 January 2016.
Chaplin’s own score will be performed live by the Bristol Ensemble.
In 2010, the Association Atelier 76 began running filmmaking workshops called "Ciné-Pousse" in primary schools in the working-class neighborhoods of Seine-St-Denis near Paris. But Ciné-Pousse is much more than just a filmmaking project...
These workshops aim to open up children's minds to art and culture through slapstick film. The association is committed to offering equal opportunities to the children of Seine-Saint-Denis. Every child involved has several roles in a multifaceted cultural project. The children (re)discover the life and work of Charlie Chaplin, and are also taught to write, act in, and produce their very own short silent film.
The association now also organizes workshops with children and teenagers at an out-of-school setting, the Cinéma Le Trianon in Romainville. To date, 15 films have been written and produced by the participating kids, including a class of children with disabilities. When the films premiere at Cinéma Le Trianon, the kids themselves welcome guests and run the ticket booth.
