This long lost sci-fi masterpiece from maverick filmmaker Andrzej Żuławski screens at The Horse Hospital alongside an exhibition of costumes and ephemera from the film. In 1975, the maverick arthouse director Andrzej Żuławski decided to adapt a trilogy of novels written by his great-uncle, Jerzy. The so-called ‘Lunar Trilogy’ is considered a landmark in Polish sci-fi and went on to inspire Stanisław Lem’s writing. Yet Żuławski’s adaptation was not immediately fated for success. This epic, dystopian creation myth was shut down by the Communist party in 1977 after 80% of the footage was shot. The government then ordered the destruction of the film reels and all other set materials. Luckily, the film studio and crew ignored these orders, and Żuławski’s fantastical creativity was preserved.
