On the Silver Globe (New Restoration)
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.
