Cinema's most famous vision of the future was apparently inspired by director Fritz Lang's first sight of Manhattan when his ship docked at New York.
The film's premise is that in the year 2000, workers barracked in a vast underground city rebel against their preordained function of servicing the needs of an Aryan caste who live in technocratic luxury above. We are presenting the film digitally restored and with a new recording of the original score.
This screening will be introduced by Lucy Morris of Native Architects, and Charlotte Harrison of Mass Architecture. They are the two chairs of the newly formed York Architectural Association (the York Branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects), and they will introduce the work and plans of the Association using the themes in METROPOLIS to explore the relationship between architecture and society.
