Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 film is a landmark in science-fiction cinema. The meticulously designed film tells the story of a futuristic city which is sharply divided between the working class and those that run the city. The son of the city’s mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a saviour to mediate their differences. A crazed scientist however uses a robot he has created in an attempt to quash a possible rebellion.

Lancaster based duo Lee Affen and Ric Smithson have composed a new dark,
ambient electro-acoustic score which they will be performing live to accompany
the film.
