Who is Filibus?

About this Event

Who is the Filibus? The mysterious Filibus is the “feminist steampunk jewel thief cross-dressing aviatrix” in a lighthearted pulpy serial type thriller, similar to Feuillade’s Les Vampires in style. Produced by a small studio in Turin and shot on the Italian Riviera, it’s a fun sassy romp through numerous tropes.

Our feminist super villain, bent on stealing jewels, enters into a cat and mouse duel of wits and bravado with the true blue detective out to stop her cold! Yes, there are private airships involved! Penned by future science fiction writer Giovanni Bertinetti, this deliriously insane thriller is delightfully mad and thoroughly entertaining.
