The Silver Globe




A group of space pioneers starts a colony on the moon. As the adults die off, the children revert to primitive forms, creating their own myths, deities, and social classes. Years later, a politician from earth arrives and - fulfilling the moon people's prophecy - is hailed as their great messiah.
"One of cinema's most stunning extravagances, and the most frightening art film you will ever see," says Film Comment's Michael Atkinson about this banned science fiction epic by controversial director Andrzej Zulawski. The Polish Ministry of Culture halted production On The Silver Globe in 1978, and until the fall of communism in 1986 when Zulawski completed the film, it remained both his best-known and least-seen work. In this surreal and disturbing mix of 2001 and Lord Of The Flies.
