On the Silver Globe

Film stills

Kas pažįsta save, pažįsta ir Dievą.

A small group of cosmic explorers leaves Earth to find freedom and start a new civilization. When their spaceship crashes on an unnamed Earth-like planet, the astronauts reach a seashore, where they build a village. After many years, they eventually die one by one, while their children revert to a primitive native culture, creating new myths and a new god. A three-hour journey straight into the center of Andrzej Zulawski’s creative universe, On The Silver Globe is probably his most phantasmagorical film.

Andrzej Żuławski

Andrzej Żuławski was born in 1940 in Poland, and grew up between Warsaw and Paris. After finishing school, he studied Cinema in Paris. He then returned to Poland to become an assistant of the prominent Andrzej Wajda. His first full-length feature, The Third Part of The Night (1971), was widely acclaimed and earned many international prizes. As the career grew, he had difficulties with the Soviet regime, eventually facing censorship for his film The Devil (1972), and decided to return to France. The film Possession (1981) was selected for the official competition at the Cannes Film Festival. He also directed films Mad Love (1985), My Nights Are More Beautiful Than Your Days (1989), Fidelity (2000) and Cosmos (2015).
