The Film Society of Lincoln Center, in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York is proud to present a new digital restoration of the late Andrzej Zulawski's sci-fi cult epic On the Silver Globe, the most ambitious and difficult project of his career, which critics have compared to David Lynch's Dune and Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain.
The largest Polish production of all time when shooting began in 1976, production was halted by the Ministry of Culture for two years due to accusations of subversiveness. The film was finally reconstituted and completed after the fall of Communism over a decade later. The resulting film follows a group of astronauts who, after crash-landing on the moon, forge a new society. As the first generation dies off, their children devise new rituals and mythologies to structure the emergent civilization, until a politician from Earth arrives and is hailed as the Messiah… An inexhaustibly inventive and absorbing film maudit that quite literally creates a new cinematic world, On the Silver Globe is perhaps the grandest expression of Zulawski's visionary artistry. Now this very rarely screened film returns in a new digital restoration personally approved by Zulawski and director of photography Andrzej Jaroszewicz.
Andrzej Zulawski (1940 — 2016) director, screenwriter, novelist, essayist and actor has created a body of work unlike any other. His debut feature The Third Part of the Night (1971) defined his exuberant style, which developed over the course of his career in Poland and France.

Zulawski's filmmaking is like an expressive dance, with non-linear storytelling and elements of surrealism, where extravagance of form serves as a metaphor for conflicting forces within the human soul and a desperate search for the truth, beauty, the absolute, and salvation. Loved by many, hated by some, he remains one of Poland's and Europe's most radical and appreciated filmmakers.
