The Kid

"The Kid" temporary exhibition at Chaplin's World

Mar 1, 2022

The museum dedicated to the icon of silent cinema in Corsier-sur-Vevey, offers from March 18 to September 25, 2022, a total immersion in the heart of the iconic film "The Kid" (released in 1921) and Chaplin's childhood.

A period marked for him by poverty, and yet decisive in his career and his work. In a setting of magic lanterns and references to the 1900s, the visitor discovers in four exhibition spaces, the immense influence of a music-hall artist mother on the filmmaker, the childlike attributes of Charlie Chaplin, as well as the incredible complicity between the vagabond and the Kid, Jackie Coogan, the first child star of the cinema. The exhibition ends with testimonies and childhood memories of his offspring, which helps to understand who the father behind the celebrity was.

Considered by the British Film Institute as one of the 50 films to see before you turn 15, The Kid is a cross-generational work to watch with the whole family. In making this film, Chaplin went back to his childhood and shows how suffering can be transformed into a zest for life and dreams realized.

The exhibition is included and accessible with the purchase of a valid Chaplin's World ticket.
