Fritz Lang’s 1927 futuristic fantasy on the big screen with live accompaniment provided by Northern Silents.

It is 2026. In the high-tech city of the future, the rich enjoy a life of luxury while the poor are enslaved underground, in the city’s mechanical underbelly. Tensions build between the subterranean workers and pampered surface-dwellers when the prophet-like Maria, with her subversive message of universal brotherhood, ignites the spark of revolution among the workers. The city’s mastermind, Freder, creates an android version of Maria to re-establish control.

But his creation, the robot Maria, cannot be controlled…
