Scalarama Brighton and Beyond, Brighton Digital Festival, and the Duke of York’s Picturehouse are proud to celebrate the Duke’s 107th birthday with this unique screening of Metropolis, with a live piano accompaniment from Scottish-based musician Dmytro Morykit.
Written by Thea Von Harbou and directed by Fritz Lang, Metropolis is a German silent expressionist film regarded as a pioneering work of science fiction. As the first feature-length movie of the genre, set in a futuristic urban dystopia, it is among the most iconic and influential films of all time, and still astounds audiences ninety years on from its release in 1927.
