This month’s Bigger Picture presentation, which argues for a film’s place within the canon, chimes with IFI’s Futures Past season throughout April, exploring how cinema of the past has imagined our future.

The screening will be introduced by Lynn Scarff, Director of Science Gallery Dublin, with whom the IFI are collaborating for this season.

Directed in 1926 by Fritz Lang, Metropolis is a seminal, ground- breaking work whose images of a segregated dystopian cityscape in the 21st century, where workers toil underground and rulers dwell in luxurious skyscrapers, have left an indelible mark on popular culture.

GUEST SPEAKER: Lynn Scarff, Director of Science Gallery Dublin, will introduce this screening.

Screening as part of Futures Past: How Cinema of the Past Has Imagined Our Future, a season of films with guest speakers, presented in collaboration with Science Gallery Dublin.
