Program Notes

- Program Note by composer

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist science-fiction drama film directed by Fritz Lang. The silent film is regarded as a pioneering science-fiction movie, being among the first feature-length movies of that genre.

Made during the Weimar period, Metropolis is set in a futuristic urban dystopia and follows the attempts of Freder, the wealthy son of the city master, and Maria, a saintly figure to the workers, to overcome the vast gulf separating the classes in their city and bring the workers together with Joh Fredersen, the city master. The film's message is encompassed in the final inter-title: "The Mediator Between the Head and the Hands Must Be the Heart".
