About the Program

Set in a futuristic dystopia, Metropolis (1927) takes place in 2026 “when the populace is divided between workers who must live in the dark underground and the rich who enjoy a futuristic city of splendor.” Directed by Fritz Lang and considered a crowning achievement of German expressionist film (124 min). Presented in conjunction with Work in Progress: Considering Utopia; free in conjunction with Free First Tuesdays.
