North American premiere!
The Chase After Millions (Germany 1930) by Max Obal, with Luciano Albertini, Raimondo van Riel, Gretl Bernd

A nameless hero chases after a crook posing as a nobleman to get his hands on an inheritance worth millions. The recently restored silent became an early sensation of German sound cinema, mixing drama, action and humour, featuring breathtaking landscape shots of the Dalmatian coast as well as exciting stunts that give the film's hero Albertini the opportunity to shine in his last starring role.

E-introduced by film restorer Oliver Hanley.

With live music accompaniment by turntablist SlowPitchSound. Join us and SlowPitchSound after the screening for an exclusive live set!
