Metropolis exhibition at the Cinemathèque
October 3, 2011
Behind the scenes of the expressionist cinematic masterpiece
- Text by Violaine Schutz
After the stunning Kubrick exhibition (and before focused on Tim Burton), the Cinemathèque pays tribute to the cult silent movie "Metropolis" by the Austrian director Fritz Lang. Almost 80 years after it was first shown in 1927 in Germany, a new version has been found in Buenos Aires. To celebrate this, the exhibition collects rare objets about one of the first ever sci-fi films. Set pieces, photographs, scripts, music scores, sketches for the special effects, posters and old press kits will be unveiled in the Cinémathèque Française from October 19 to January 29, 2012. These iconic images have influenced films such as "Star Wars". George Lucas is said to have been inspired by the (sexy) droid heroine Maria, when he created C3P0.
