ABOUT THE FILM
The 28th annual Dallas VideoFest will open with arguably the most famous silent film, METROPOLIS. Since this is VideoFest, there’s a twist that will make it different than you’ve ever seen it before. On top of a new score by Brian Satterwhite, performed by the Dallas Chamber Symphony, this evening also includes the added dimension of custom choreography performed by SMU Dance.
Austin-based Brian Satterwhite has partnered with the DCS in the past with his critically acclaimed compositions for 2012’s “A Sailor Made Man” and 2013’s “The Cabinet of Dr. Cagliari.”
