Few series have such cult status that they give their name to an exhibition. That is now the case with Freaks & Geeks -produced by Judd Apatow and created by Paul Feig- which hit the US audience in 1999, but has spread later to a wider audience thanks to DVDs & torrents. An audience who can acknowledge that this one ages well.
The tenderness of it all –you smile more than you laugh and nostalgia isn’t very far in most episodes– plus James Franco revelation, a neo-James Dean, multitasking student, performance art maniac, Oscars host and what he did not do to make the series a compulsory watch.
Now, under the same title, the Air de Paris gallery team is presenting a collection of everyday life objects, films and paintings referring to the losers who gave value to teen movies. Obviously it’s a far different experience, but still worth taking your inner geek out of the computer for a bit!
