The QPO will perform the original score by Gottfried Huppertz, along with the Protected content . This influential German science-fiction film presents a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. [Sound like anywhere you know? (cough,cough)] When the privileged youth Freder (Gustav Fröhlich) discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends the rebellious teacher Maria (Brigitte Helm), but this puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to greater conflict. [insert wisecrack here]


This event is part of the Qatar-Germany Year of Culture Protected content . It is organized by the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra and the Doha Film Institute in partnership with Qatar Museums, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Göthe-Institut Gulf Region.
