Title: Metropolis
Promoted by: Mayfield Festival
Time: Thursday, 30 April 2020, at 7:00pm
Place: St Dunstan’s Church, Mayfield
Description: Metropolis was directed by Fritz Lang in 1927 and is a sci-fi epic still astonishingly a dystopian vision of a grotesquely unequal future society which threatens to implode, and a thrilling celebration of technology that also recognises its enslaving power. A visual image, this gargantuan attempt to outdo Hollywood was a financial disaster for Germany’s UFA Studios; but its futuristic images also acknowledging the Gothic heritage, now have an iconic status.

This silent film is accompanied on the organ by Darius Battiwalla. Darius studied at The Royal Northern College of Music, where he now teaches organ, continuo and improvisation.

This evening’s film is kindly sponsored by St Dunstan’s Organ Trust.
