THE IMMIGRANT fled on a ship to America. Poor and hungry he rejoices over a coin that he finds – without noticing, that it is his own last penny, that fell out through a hole in his pocket. Chaplin’s iconic character of the „tramp“ already embodies this migrating movement by film titles like THE VAGABOND. The underdog tries to survive in a hostile world and to stay humane at the same time. With slapstick and humanism, these films tell of a time, when in consequence of the First World War another big wave of refugees was rolling from Europe to America.
