Don't miss The New Pollutants' acclaimed re-score of this cinema classic.

The New Pollutants, the musical duo of Benjamin Speed and Tyson Hopprich, present their new score to Fritz Lang's classic silent film, Metropolis.

They perform their electronic score live, accompanied by vocalist Astrid Pill and cellist Zoe Barry. Their infectious and unique approach ranges from Germanic trip hop and lo-fi electronica to unforgettable classical and breathtaking cinematica.

Conceived, composed and recorded over twelve months, this landmark re-score had its world premiere at the 2005 Adelaide Film Festival, where it was celebrated by The Advertiser as a "once in a lifetime experience" and has been invited to the 2006 Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The performance uses the digitally remastered and definitive 35mm print of Metropolis, restored in Germany in 2002 with state-of-the-art restoration technology under the supervision of the Murnau Foundation.
