Plot Sypnosis:

"No other crime thriller compares to Filibus!" exclaimed a Corona Films ad in the April 1915 Italian film magazine La Vita Cinematografica — and for once the ballyhoo was correct! Directed by Mario Roncoroni and scripted by future science fiction author Giovanni Bertinetti, Filibus is the most exciting, witty, feminist, steampunk, cross-dressing aviatrix thriller you will ever see! Flying high above the clouds in her dirigible, Filibus, the mysterious sky pirate, is a master of disguise and the scourge of millionaires, banks, and the police. Lowered in a gondola by her henchmen, Filibus steals from the rich and then mysteriously vanishes into the clouds.

With a new digital transfer, newly translated intertitles and a stunning score by the famed Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, Filibus is a joy to behold!

Special Features:

  • *Recreating the original Netherlands opening in 1916: Dutch newsreel "Laatste bioscoop wereldberichten" (1916), hilarious French comedy Onésime et la toilette de mademoiselle Badinois (Jean Durand, 1912, Gaumont), Italian travelogue Rapallo (1914, Cines), and the amazing French drama Amour et science (M.J. Hoche, 1912)
  • Italian feature film Signori giurati (Giuseppe Giusti, 1916, Corona Films) starring Fabienne Fabrèges, and Filibus herself, Valeria Creti!
  • Two additional Filibus scores composed by Donald Sosin
