A century later, let’s celebrate the artistic freedom of the 1920s with unique works by Lotte Reiniger, Walter Ruttmann and Oskar Fischinger. 

Inspired by the subject of the exhibition Variations. Eugène Frey’s Light Set Projections presented by João Maria Gusmão, the Institut audiovisuel de Monaco has imagined this screening of short films – some of them showed on 16mm film – with Hervé Joubert-Laurencin, a specialist of animated films.
