Overview

On the Silver Globe (1987) could have become one of the most groundbreaking SF films ever made. The huge budget, thought-provoking script, and bold artistic vision promised a masterpiece. Why, then, did the communist film industry bosses halt production two weeks before the shoot was completed? Was it for economic reasons? Political? Artistic? Or personal? What remains are the fragments of the film which still inspire audiences and the emotions of the crew, as strong today as they were forty years ago. This documentary is a story about the biggest mystery and the greatest, unfulfilled dream of Polish cinema.

Review

The history of cinema can also be written through films that were left unfinished for various reasons, and failed projects by talented directors. Perhaps its history is full of ridiculously funny anecdotes, but there will also be regrets about its potential in it. The documentary Escape to the Silver Globe is the realization of this idea. With respect to On the Silver Globe, director Kuba Mikurda talks about its production process and the moment when the production was canceled through the testimony of the staff who participated in making it, the opinions of critics, and archives. Andrzej Żuławski's sci-fi film was never completed as originally planned, despite being the largest project in Polish cinematic history; filming was halted by the Communist government, and the set and costumes were destroyed. Nevertheless, the documentary Escape to the Silver Globe testifies all about how Żuławski's film became a legend. [Sung MOON]
