In the late 1920s, the two friends Don Lockwood and Cosmo Brown try to make their fortune in Hollywood. Together with his partner, the hysterical actress Lina Lamont, Don quickly achieves great success. When the time comes to switch from silent to talkies, Lina's career and an ongoing production are jeopardized by her thin, high-pitched voice. Cosmo saves the project with the idea of turning the movie into a musical and have Lina dubbed by Don's friend Kathy.

More about the film series "The Cinema of Euphoria"

Euphoria is one of those words that we have inherited from the ancient Greeks. And as with many of these words, the question is: what does it even mean? And since we are a film club, the question is of course: what does it mean to feel euphoria at the movies? Does the selection of films we have put together make us happy, in love with life? Can films still do this in an age in which the image has lost its power due to its inherent oversaturation?

In this summer semester, carried along by spring, we will take you on a journey that examines the concept of euphoria in its many ways of representation and evocation. and evocative possibilities. From Jackie Chan to Werner Herzog, from Singing in the Rain to Leos Carax!
