SpectreFest: Metropolis

Fritz Lang's masterpiece, Metropolis, employed nearly 37,000 actors, took a year and a half to produce and nearly bankrupted the studio—but Lang's influential dystopian epic still haunts film history. Set in the year 2026, in a future society divided between a master race of capitalists who rule from towering high-rises and the enslaved masses who toil in sprawling subterranean factories, the film focuses on the struggle between the pacifist, Lower City activist Maria, and her evil robot double who incites the worker slaves to self-destruction. Get a unique take on the silent sci-fi classic at this Cinefamily screening, with a live score from Stones Throw Records' synth wizard Chrome Canyon.
