Max Mack’s Where is Coletti? (1913) is the first known detective film from the German-speaking world. But rather than chart the piecemeal resolution of a sensational crime, it is the comedic Detective Coletti that the film pursues. Gone incognito in the bustling metropolis of Berlin, Coletti dares the public to play detective--to scan city streets and sweep crowded cafes in search of their elusive prey. Berliners have 48 hours to find Coletti and turn in him in for a handsome reward of 100.000 Mark.

Light dinner served at 6:30, film introduced at 7:00 by Graduate Student Kathryn Holihan of the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures. Screened in German with English subtitles.
