Metropia takes place in a not-so-distant future. The world is running out of oil and the underground train systems have been connected into a gigantic subway network beneath Europe. Whenever Roger from Stockholm enters this system he hears a stranger’s voice in his head. He looks to the mysterious Nina to help him escape the disturbing web of the Metro, but the further they travel, the deeper he’s involved in a dark conspiracy.
Tarik Saleh has, together with Erik Gandini, directed several award-winning documentaries including GITMO – New Rules of War (2005), and Sacrificio – Who Betrayed Che Guevara? (2001). He is one of the founders of Atmo, and formed Atmo Animation which has gone on to write and produce over 30 short animation films.
