METROPOLIS
Presented by David Oertel
510-393-5685

This famous German feature film directed by Fritz Lang is magnificent and riveting today just like it was when it appeared in 1927, in the days of silent movies. It’s about a future society, perhaps ours, with a steep class differentiation. Humans are divided into thinkers, who make plans (but don’t know how anything works), and workers, who achieve goals (but don’t have the vision). Then one man from the “thinkers” dares visit the underground where the workers toil and is astonished by what he sees. The plot thickens: workers are controlled by their leader Maria (Brigitte Helm), who wants to find a mediator between the upper class lords and the workers since she believes that a heart would be necessary between brains and muscles.

Before and after the film, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Coffee House
