For one day only, The Arches will be completely transformed into an alternative cineplex, full to the brim with film and live music. An all day festival-within-a-festival, The Arches Café Bar and Restaurant will be serving up food and drink all day long while audiences explore the stages and screens scattered throughout the cavernous railway arches.

The headline act is a screening of Fritz Lang’s Woman in the Moon, accompanied live by sci-fi obsessive Jeff Mills who will be playing his brand new original score across three decks for the first time ever on UK soil. Known as the first ‘serious’ science fiction film, Lang’s film is visually and conceptually stunning, using innovative modelling and state-of-the-art modernist design to explain the then-new concept of moon travel. Mills’ soundtrack, consisting wholly of original compositions, aims to expand the understanding of techno and electronic music beyond the dancefloor: “its structure is perfect in relaying certain things about people’s concerns and visions about the future. This is an example of broadening the genre in a meaningful way.”

Meanwhile, Godfather of Krautrock, Dieter Mobius (Kluster), will present his live score to Fritz Lang’s 1927 classic Metropolis and industrial techno duo Raime will perform a live AV show (in association with Cry Parrot), alongside a host of other experiences and audio-visual treats detailed above.

The line-up has been carefully selected and commissioned to create one of the most eclectic, stimulating and entertaining days out a film or music buff could hope to have. True to form as a mini-festival, set times will be online from next week so fans of each act can plan their schedule.
