Silent comedy film production in the 1910s and 20s was dominated by the big studios in the US but in Europe, a new, more expansive form of comedy was developing.

From the early subtle humour of Georges Méliès, through Max Linder to discoveries across Europe’s film archives, film preservationist and founder of Lobster films Serge Bromberg presents this magical collection of rarely seen archive comedies.
