About a year ago the news of the sensational rediscovery of the original version of Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" went around the globe. The find of this uncut version in the archives of the film museum Museo del Cine in Buenos Aires is so important because it contains key scenes that were considered to be lost forever after the movie was radically cut because of a disappointing premiere. These 30 minutes long scenes could give a completely new view on the dramaturgical plot. Metropolis is a historic masterpiece of early cinematography and the most important silent movie in German history. The original cut of the dystopia had its premiere in Berlin on January 10, 1927. Metropolis is probably the most famous science fiction movie ever and has influenced and inspired writers, movie producers and directors down to the present day. The 16-millimeter negatives are currently under restoration and will be most likely shown at next year's Berlinale in Germany.
