Les Sorciers Perdus: Metropolis
Fritz Langs 1927 German Expressionist science-fiction classic, Metropolis, tells the story of a dystopian future divided by class and a heroine and hero determined to restore justice and harmony - despite the odds! An incredibly influential silent film, Metropolis paved the way for countless science fiction films to come. A new score by Maine trumpeter/composer Mark Tipton will be performed during the film by contemporary chamber ensemble Les Sorciers Perdus, ("The Lost Wizards"). The score blends jazz, rock, classical, and avant-garde styles into a cohesive whole as it rides along with Lang's futuristic visual tour-de-force, which includes dreary workers, colossal machines, greedy tycoons, stalwart heroes, a sexy robot, and a subversive mad scientist!
