Serge Bromberg, the founder of Lobster Films in Paris, is a true impresario: a film historian who salvages lost classics and curiosities of cinema from attics, flea markets, and other serendipitous places. A conservator who collaborates worldwide to restore these films; and a born showman who, through his now-famous Retour de Flamme (Saved from the flames) presentations, makes moviegoing a thing of wonder and excitement again.

This year’s programme, which Serge also accompanies on piano, features discoveries that he and other devoted film enthusiasts have recently made, including a special Laurel & Hardy surprise!
