Museum für Film und Fernsehen (Berlin)
In cooperation with the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung


In 2010, the original version of one of the most important works in film history will be shown in Berlin. It includes footage that was thought lost for decades. To mark the occasion, an exhibition will tell the story behind the artistic vision of METROPOLIS (Germany 1927, directed by Fritz Lang) and how this gigantic production was realized. Its spectacular mass scenes, futuristic set designs, and the image of the Machine Man have influenced science-fiction films and music videos to this day (PDF, german language).
