7pm VICTORIA

Out clubbing pre-dawn on a Berlin weekday, genial young Madrid-based waitress Victoria (Laia Costa) meets the overly-friendly Sonne (Frederick Lau) and his hyperactive friends. Pumped from the music, they wander around the Mitte section of the city until real life intrudes and she’s ensnared as an accomplice in a desperate deed.

WHO AM I

10pm WHO AM I: NO SYSTEM IS SAFE

A garden-variety contemporary nerd, Benjamin (Tom Schilling) has no friends at school and few social skills, and can only dream of hooking up with classmate Hannah (Hannah Herzsprung). But there’s one thing Benjamin understands, and that’s computers. Before long he’s been recruited by hard-living Max (Elyas M’Barek) and becomes part of an anonymous hacking collective called CLAY (Clowns Laughing @ You).

METROPOLIS

ABOUT METROPOLIS

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist epic science-fiction drama film directed by Fritz Lang. Lang and his wife, Thea von Harbou, wrote the silent film, which starred Brigitte Helm, Gustav Fröhlich, Alfred Abel and Rudolf Klein-Rogge. Erich Pommer produced it in the Babelsberg Studios for Universum Film A.G.. It is regarded as a pioneering work of the science-fiction genre in movies, being among the first feature-length movies of the genre.
