Ikarie XB 1 Rated U

Ikarie XB 1

Dir. Jindrich Polak. Czechslovakia, 1965. 1h 21m. Czech/subs. Starring Jiri Vrstala, Zdenek Stepanek, Radovan Lukavsky, Dana Medricka.

The year is 2163. Starship Ikaria XB 1 embarks on a long journey across the Universe, to search for life on the planets of Alpha Centauri. 4K restoration of Polák’s pioneering and much-imitated cornerstone of contemporary sci-fi.

'A classic of Eastern Bloc filmmaking, it vividly summons that early thrill of discovery - and dread of the unknown - that the space programme once invoked.' ★★★★ John Nugent, The Skinny
