Richard Williams

Metropolis 2 – second screening

Venue: St Mary’s Church

Father 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, playing the outstanding Bevington organ. This early science fiction film presents a highly stylised 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.
