“Former graffiti artist Tarik Saleh concocts a bizarre, animated dystopian thriller… this is a trip well worth taking.” Time Out New York; David Fear, Joshua Rothkopf, and Keith Uhlich;
METROPIA takes place in a not-so-distant but terrifying Europe of the future. The world is running out of oil and the underground train systems have been connected, creating a gigantic subway network beneath Europe. In a suburb of Stockholm, Roger (Vincent Gallo, Buffalo ’66) tries to stay away from the underground because every time he enters, he hears a stranger’s voice in his head. Is someone trying to control him? To help him escape the disturbing web of the Metro, he looks to the mysterious Nina (Juliette Lewis, Whip It) but the further they travel, the deeper he’s involved in a dark conspiracy. This star-studded, “technically innovative” (The New York Times) animated sci-fi thriller also features Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), Stellan Skarsgård (Mamma Mia!) and Udo Kier (Shadow of the Vampire).

“Visually dazzling, Saleh’s animation director, Christian Ryltenius, and art director Marti Hultman produced an intriguing vision of the Fabian EU utopia gone to seed.” Epoch Times; Joe Bendel; 4/28/10
“In any case, the real star here is the film’s eerily unsettling animation, a digitally manipulated photo-montage that makes everyone look almost human – in a heavily medicated, genetically suspect kind of way.” New York Times; Jeannette Catsoulis; 5/12/10
“What sets Metropia apart is its texture. There have been plenty of stop-action fantasies - usually animated roller coasters in the vein of Fantastic Mr. Fox. But the stop-action visual techniques in “Metropia” move much more slowly and mysteriously.” Metromix; Jim Snyder; 5/3/10
