Max Linder is the founder of a genre that has forever changed the entire history of cinema. From the early 20th century , he was the first to impose an image of sporting gentleman , courageous and funny which will inspire later Chaplin to invent the vagabond. Quality black and white stilts , depth of field and the rhythmic montage of his films place Linder among the pioneers of art film .

100 years later, ensemble Télémaque pays tribute to the father of Burlesque asking 3 composers to write original music to accompany live episodes filmed in 1912.

Premiere took place as part of program Marseille- Provence 2013, European Capital of Culture .
