NOVEMBER 3rd at 6 pm.

Join us at 6 pm for a talk on Metropolis and other classic science fiction movies with Peter Sands. The Movie will start at 7 pm.

Peter Sands is Director of the Honors College and Associate Professor of English at UW-Milwaukee, where he teaches courses on writing, American literature, science fiction, and utopian studies. Sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Metropolis takes place in the year 2026, when the populace is divided between workers, who must live in the dark underground, and the rich who enjoy a futuristic city of splendor. The tense balance of these two societies is realized through images that are among the most famous of the 20th century, many of which presage such sci-fi landmarks as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner. Lavish and spectacular, with elaborate sets, heart-pounding action and modern science fiction style, Metropolis stands today as the crowning achievement of classic science fiction cinema.
