Futuristic and forbidding, Melbourne International Film Festival presents Chronopolis, a work composed by David Shea for musical ensemble, film collage and narration.

Chronopolis tells the story of the rise and fall of a mythical city built on the architecture of time. It is a tribute to the music of Luc Ferrari, based on the film Chronopolis (an animated film loosely based on Metropolis) by Piotr Kamer and the work of Chris Marker of La Jetée fame.

The image collage (compiled by Kristi Monfries and Michael Fairlie), takes the role of the traditional soundtrack in this 'sound film', employing archive materials, photographs and new footage to relay the story of Chronopolis.

Contributing musicians include Scanner and Lawrence English.
