Metropolis – Screening with live organ accompaniment

Venue: St Mary’s Church

Fr Richard Williams, the extraordinary gifted organist, composer and Vicar of St Mary's Church in Hay performs a stunning live accompaniment to Fritz Lang's classic 1927 film 'METROPOLIS' using the outstanding Bevington organ. This early science fiction film presents a highly stylized futuristic city where a cultured Utopian society exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. The love interest is provided by a privileged youth who befriends a rebellious teacher putting him at odds with his authoritarian father.
