CINEMA REBORN’S FIRST EVER SILENT CLASSIC

Cinema Reborn’s first silent film presentation, Filibus was rescued and restored by Amsterdam’s Eye Film Archive. Fast-paced, with multiple deceptions, it features a cross-dressing heroine who escapes via a gondola in the sky. “Anticipating the kind of anxieties that were recently raised by Joker, [scriptwriter] Bertinetti argued that seemingly ‘frivolous’ movies were a form of ‘light hypnosis’ useful in stimulating passive spectators to action — and thus raising the possibility that Filibus was intended to inspire a nation of independent women if not cross-dressing burglars.” (J. Hoberman,  New York Times).

Filibus is presented at Cinema Reborn thanks to the generous support of David and Leith Bruce-Steer.

Co-presented with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Sydney.
