        About The Film

        One of the biggest film events of the century, a “Holy Grail” among film finds, Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi epic can finally be seen – for the first time in 83 years – as the director originally intended and as seen by German cinema-goers in 1927...more

        About The Restoration

        On January 10 1927, Fritz Lang’s Metropolis premieres in Berlin in a 4189-metre version approved by the director. For the film’s 3100-metre USA release, on March 7, Paramount take the butcher’s knife to the original and remove a quarter, rewriting the film’s intertitles, and changing the characters’ names. Following Paramount’s lead, Ufa withdraws Metropolis and on August 26 re-releases it in a 3241-metre cut shorn of nearly a quarter of Lang’s original. The director profoundly opposes the savage cuts. Excised footage would remain lost to the world for more than 80 years...more
