A digitally restored copy of Fritz Lang's silent film classic Metropolis, one of the greatest masterpieces in film history, will be shown within the European Capital of Culture framework. The copy includes recently discovered parts, lost for decades. A timeless dystopian tale examining the search for humanity and the rising of downtrodden people seems no less revolutionary and magnificent nowadays than it at the time of its release in 1927. Fritz Lang spent some time in Ljutomer during World War I, where he was recuperating from an injury at the house of Karl Grossman. The film will be accompanied by a 60-member symphony orchestra, which will perform the original movie score by Gottfried Gupertz.
