CinePunked presents Metropolis

Monday 5 November
Strand Arts Centre



Fritz Lang's silent film is a classic of science fiction cinema, presenting a future world in which artificial intelligence is engaged to stifle the rebellious working classes. The movie is packed with iconic visuals and much homaged.

Following a screening of the uncut 1927 original, CinePunked's Robert JE Simpson will lead an interactive discussion exploring the importance of Metropolis to Sci-fi cinema, with particular attention to the 2001 manga version by Osamu Tezuka, and Metropolis' reflection of this and other worlds.
