Fritz Lang’s 1926 glorious black-and-white film Metropolis is considered one of the most important visual masterpieces in film history. This silent science-fiction classic set the bar for such contemporary films as “Blade Runner” (1982), “The Fifth Element” (1997) and Spielberg’s “Minority Report” (2002). Lang, one of the most influential directors of silent film era German Expressionism, fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s for Hollywood, after making a name for himself as one of the early giants of international cinema. Now, for the first time, legendary scenes and sequences from Metropolis are brought to life, frame by frame, as photographic prints.
