Berlinale Streaming Restored METROPOLIS
// By Jonathan Jackson //
"One of the most important film archival discoveries in history," Roger Ebert writes about the newly restored version of the Fritz Lang 1926 classic METROPOLIS. The newly restored version is set to premiere tonight at the Berlinale and live on the web at the same time (1:30pm Milwaukee time).
Apparently at least a half hour of footage of this landmark film that was thought to be lost forever was found in a film archive in Buenos Aries, full story via The Hollywood Reporter.
I can't guarantee the langauge of the subtitles, but here is the supposed location of the German live stream.
Here is to hoping that The Magnificent Ambersons ending is discovered next!
