In the late twenties and early thirties, Yasujiro Ozu was working steadily for Shochiku studios, honing his craft on dozens of silent films in various genres, from romantic melodramas to college comedies to gangster pictures—and, of course, movies about families. In these three droll domestic films—Tokyo Chorus, I Was Born, But . . . , and Passing Fancy, presented here with all-new scores by renowned silent-film composer Donald Sosin—Ozu movingly and humorously depicts middle-class struggles and the resentments between children and parents, establishing the emotional and aesthetic delicacy with which he would transform the landscape of cinema."

Charles Chaplin découvre l'Amérique en 1910, à 21 ans, à la tête d'une troupe de music-hall qui compte dans ses rangs un certain Stanley Jefferson - futur Stan Laurel. Charles Chaplin, qui a perdu son père tandis que sa mère sombrait dans la folie, a fait ses classes à la dure école de la rue londonienne. Il garde néanmoins une confiance absolue en lui. Embauché par Mack Sennett, patron des studios Keystone, il obtient de mettre en scène ses propres films et signe, en 1915, avec les studios Essanay.
Rapidement, il devient l'acteur le mieux payé et le plus connu au monde. Le succès de Charlot, le petit vagabond, est planétaire. La Mutual Film Corporation lui propose un budget sans précédent pour tourner douze comédies. Ces deux années de création permettent à Chaplin d'affirmer son art. Un siècle plus tard, la magie reste intacte.
