S1: Metropolis

Hi all

This will be really close to the monthly meeting, but I promised a friend that I would go along and see this.  If you are going to the monthly meeting, as long as you leave by 2:30pm, you should be able to make the movie on time.  If you are interested, please see the details below about this classic sci-fi film.

 

  Metropolis

(1927, dir. Fritz Lang, w/ Brigitte Helm, Alfred Abel, Gustav Fröhlich, Rudolf Klein-Rogge)

Metropolis will finish at approximately 6:08pm.

Sometime in the future, the city of Metropolis is home to a Utopian society where its wealthy residents live a carefree life. One of those is Freder Fredersen. One day, he spots a beautiful woman with a group of children, she and the children who quickly disappear. Trying to follow her, he, oblivious to such, is horrified to find an underground world of workers, apparently who run the machinery which keeps the above ground Utopian world functioning. One of the few people above ground who knows about the world below is Freder's father, Joh Fredersen, who is the founder and master of Metropolis. Freder learns that the woman is Maria, who espouses the need to join the hands - the workers - to the head - those in power above - by a mediator or the heart. Freder wants to help the plight of the workers in the want for a better life. But when Joh learns of what Maria is espousing and that Freder is joining their cause, Joh, with the assistance of an old colleague and now nemesis named Rotwang, an inventor, works toward quashing a supposed uprising, with Maria as the center of their plan. However, Joh is unaware that Rotwang has his own agenda. But if any of these plans includes the shut down of the machines, total anarchy could break loose both above ground and below. (IMDB)

 

Hope to see you there!
