ON THE SILVER GLOBE [NA SREBRNYM GLOBIE] (Masters of Cinema) Blu-ray
Andrzej Żuławski is an uncompromising visionary and a true maverick of European cinema. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the master director’s On the Silver Globe on Blu-ray.
Żuławski’s masterpiece follows a team of astronauts who land on a desolate planet and start a new society. When filming was 80% complete, the Polish government ordered the production to be shut down and all the negatives be destroyed. Miraculously, the original film reels were preserved and, ten years later, the film was presented at the Cannes Film Festival to great acclaim.
