About the Event:
Join ADSNY and NYU School of Professional Studies for a special screening of Director Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent film, Metropolis.
Largely regarded as a pioneering work of science-fiction, this German expressionist drama is set in a futuristic urban dystopia that is aesthetically influenced by Bauhaus, Cubist, and Futurist design. In a 2026 futuristic city––sharply divided between wealthy industrialists who reign from high-rise towers and underground-dwellers who toil to operate the underground machines that power the city––the son of the city’s mastermind falls in love with a working-class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.
Following the film Francis Morrone, a renowned New York City architectural expert, will explore how the set design relates to the Art Deco style. Morrone is an architectural historian and has authored eleven books books on architecture in New York City, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn. He teaches architectural and urban history at the New York University School of Professional Studies where he is the recipient of the university’s Excellence in Teaching Award. He was also named as one of the 13 best tour guides in the world by Travel + Leisure Magazine.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Applied Liberal Arts at the NYU School of Professional Studies, which offers courses in Arts, Design, Foreign Languages, Humanities, and Writing and Communications.
