Presented by collector Anthony Saffrey and historian David Robinson, Slapstick is privileged to premiere an unprecedented group of star comedies just rediscovered after a century in limbo.

The collector Anthony Saffrey will be presenting four films: two hitherto unknown titles by cinema’s first comic star André Deed, along with The Lady Skater, a near prehistoric but hilarious British chase film, and Love and Lunch, an early film by William A. Seiter - later director of Skinner's Dress Suit (also screening at this year’s festival) starring an unrecorded Chaplin imitator, Ray Hughes.

They’ll also be the opportunity to see works by Spanish/Italian/US comic star Marcel Perez and German genius Karl Valentin. Plus the chance to see a new film by French comedian Max Linder, courtesy of Cinematheque Francaise.

With live musical accompaniment by Daan Van den Hurk on piano and Elizabeth-Jane Baldry on Solo harp.
