Dir. Andrzej Zulawski, Poland, 1988, DCP, 166 min. Polish w/ English subtitles

Zulawski’s sci-fi epic that almost wasn’t. On the Silver Globe, which tells the tale of a strange new society evolving on a distant, earth-like planet, was abruptly halted during its production in 1977. More than a decade later the film was completed using the original footage and newly recorded voiceovers. This new digital restoration was personally approved by Żuławski and DP Andrzej Jaroszewicz, courtesy of the Polish Film Institute.
