THE FILM

Born from the excitement of Fritz Lang’s first sight of the New York skyscrapers, Metropolis is set in the year 2026, where society has been divided into two groups: those who live in luxury on the surface and “the others”. The workers, who toil underground to sustain the lives of the privileged above.

Metropolis follows Freder, the son of a wealthy elite, and Maria, a worker’s daughter, as they try to overcome the vast gulf separating their classes.
