Derby Film Festival Presents

Metropolis (U) – Live Organ Accompaniment at Derby Cathedral

Friday 19th November / 7:30pm

Derby Film Festival is back at Derby Cathedtral! Directed by Fritz Lang, this acclaimed vision of a 21st century city is widely held to be one of the greatest films of the silent era. In the year 2000, industrialist John Frederson rules over a giant city where the workers exist only as an underclass. They call for rebellion, but their leader Maria urges them to wait for a mediator. When Frederson kidnaps Maria and replaces her with a robot replica, the workers are incited to revolt. We are delighted to welcome back Donald MacKenzie (organist for the Odeon Leicester Square) to live score this masterpiece on the Cathedral’s Compton Organ.
