The NFM Organ Cinema is a new series of meetings with the cinematography of the 1920s and live improvised music. Silent frames of the famous silent films at the boundary of science fiction, horror and fantasy will be enriched by the monumental sound of the organ, played by prominent virtuosos of this wonderful instrument. This evening Tomasz Głuchowski will be accompanied by DJ Michał Macewicz.

Metropolis (1927) is a highly acclaimed film directed by Fritz Lang, who is considered the leading filmmaker of German expressionism in the interwar period. This famous work shows a futuristic dystopia in which the community is divided into two classes: a privileged group of intellectuals overseeing the functioning of the system, and workers – an exploited group, indispensable for the life of the city. Despite their separation, however, they form a whole. The city is ruled by the dictator Joh Fredersen. One day his son Freder meets and falls in love with working-class Maria. Wanting to meet her again, he goes underground, where for the first time he confronts the truth about the cruelty of the system forcing people to work as slaves. The message of Fritz Lang’s film remains relevant to this day: “there must be a heart between reason and hands”. Interestingly, the film also features Polish themes: Erich Kettelhut, who designed the skyscrapers of the city of Metropolis, was to be inspired by the building of the Upper Silesian Tower built in 1911 in Poznań, designed by the modernist architect Hans Poelzig. Lang’s work gained great fame and significantly influenced the development of culture, including popular culture – in their music videos, Queen, Madonna and Freddie Mercury referred to it. The soundtrack for the screening of the film will consist of improvisations by Tomasz Głuchowski. The organist will also be accompanied by DJ Michał Macewicz.
