Synopsis:
Polak's pioneering feature 'Ikarie XB1' is one of the cornerstones of contemporary sci-fi cinema. It predates Star Trek and Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey' and was clearly an influence on both, as well as on almost every other science-fiction work that followed. Adapted from a novel by Stanislaw Lem, the film is set in 2163 and follows a mission deep into space in search of alien life. During their perilous journey the crew confront the effects of a malignant dark star, the destructive legacy of the 20th century and, ultimately, the limits of their own sanity.
With outstanding design and cinematography, 'Ikarie XB1' is imbued with a seriousness and intelligence rarely seen in science-fiction cinema of the period.
