Directed by Mario Roncoroni and scripted by sci-fi 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, the titular sky pirate steals from the rich before mysteriously vanishing into the clouds. With the famed Detective Hendy on her trail, Filibus must up her game by posing as the Baroness Troixmond, volunteering to help with her own case! A cat-and-mouse adventure unlike any other, newly remastered by the Eye Filmmuseum, restoring the film’s marvelous range of Desmet tinting and toning to new visual delights.
