***** BACKGROUND *****

Fritz Lang's seminal 1927 science fiction masterwork 'Metropolis' was the most expensive silent film ever made. Heavily edited for American and international audiences, it was long thought that all original uncut prints had been lost forever. However in 2008 a 16 mm reduction negative of the original premiere cut of the film, including almost all the lost scenes, was discovered in Argentina. Following extensive restoration the film was re-premiered in February 2010.
