- Ikaria-XBI [1968-71], czech film partially based upon Nebula Magallanica.

Best regards,


Great post! Thank you. I have seen "Ikaria-XB I" many years ago,(and Solyaris, of course) but nothing more. Now I am going to watch all of theese

Everything here would be great to watch, but how do we find it... :(

Maybe at filmoteka@filmoteka.pl can tell you how to find the polish films and at your nearer cineclub organize a "Lem week".
"Marianengraben", dir. Achim Bornhak: you can write mail@abovetheline.de, agents of Bornhak; maybe he can send you a copy (it was a student work, Oscar nominated).
"First spaceship to Venus" (Der Schweigende Stern, upon Astronauts), dir. Kurt Maetzig, is available in DVD (look the web!).
French, czech and dutch films are hard to find, due to american film distributors blocking policies.

Good luck!

here is st. interesting
