The 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 Żuławski’s visionary artistry.

Note: Uncensored version.
One surreal, ambitious exploration of the ugliness of human nature with a comment on communist Poland at the time of its making. It deserved more time to perfect some of its flaws however its theatrical dialogue, handheld POVs, breathtaking scenery, and incredible art direction make for an truly otherworldly experience uncannily familiar to our species.
