Mania, Die Geschichte einer Zigarettenarbeiterin

Eugen Illés / DEUZE, 1918 / 85 min.

Silent film diva Pola Negri deleted Mania from her official filmography for inexplicable reasons. The film itself seemed to have vanished as well, until it resurfaced a few years ago. This cinematic gem is now screened in the Netherlands for the first time, to live piano music by Martin de Ruiter, programmer Silent Film and Live Music in EYE, introduction by Elif Rongen (curator EYE, language: English).
