Metropolis (1927)

The composer-performer collective Edison Studio composed of Mauro Cardi, Luigi Ceccarelli, Alessandro Cipriani, Vincenzo Core, and Andrea Veneri, taking up “the ancient tradition of silent film with live musical accompaniment,” has produced a new original soundtrack that mixes and makes vocal sounds, instrumental, mechanical and electronic sounds, and ambient sounds interact.
The film is screened in its most complete version ever found, the result of fine restoration work by the Alpha-Omega Digital GmbH laboratory in Munich, completed in 2010.

Metropolis is a 1927 silent film directed by Fritz Lang, considered his masterpiece. The film is set in a dystopian future in which class divisions seem to deepen. The film is among the landmark works of expressionist cinema and is universally recognized as a model for much of science fiction cinema. The film had a significant impact on popular culture and influenced many subsequent filmmakers and artists.
