Details

Featuring what some say is the screen’s first lesbian character, the Italian silent thriller Filibus follows the eponymous, cross-dressing, “mysterious air pirate” as she flies from heist to heist in an airship helmed by an all-male crew. The androgynous heroine manages to stay one step ahead of the dedicated detective on her heels by assuming, as needed, the identities of both a baroness and count (even courting the detective’s sister as the latter!). (70 mins., 2K DCP)
