The Film
It is 2026. In the high-tech city of the future, the rich enjoy a life of luxury while the poor are enslaved underground, in the city’s mechanical underbelly. Tensions build between the subterranean workers and pampered surface-dwellers when the prophet-like Maria, with her subversive message of universal brotherhood, ignites the spark of revolution among the workers. The city’s mastermind, Freder, creates an android version of Maria to re-establish control. But his creation, the robot Maria, cannot be controlled…

The Music
Jonny Best will be at the grand piano, with percussionist Trevor Bartlett adding drama. Jonny and Trevor are two of the UKs leading silent film musicians and have been performing together since 2016.
