Recently described as ‘the most exciting, witty, feminist, steampunk, cross-dressing aviatrix thriller you will ever see!’, this newly restored silent still delights more than a century after its initial release.

This delightful Italian crime caper finds the titular Filibus (Valeria Creti) traversing the skies in her airship, ready at a moment’s notice to be lowered into the abodes of the wealthy to secretly steal their riches. When the renowned Detective Kutt-Hendy (Giovanni Spano) is put on the case, Filibus must reach even greater levels of duplicity to stay one step ahead of capture. Featuring a stunning new restoration and tinting drawn from the original nitrate materials, this captivating adventure cannot be missed!
