Pioneering Czech sci-fi film – IKARIE XB-1 – now on dvd

IKARIE XBIKARIE XB-1(12) 1963  CZECHOSLOVAKIA   POLÁK, JINDRICH    £12.99   
Pioneering and much-imitated film is one of the cornerstones of contemporary sci-fi cinema. Adapted from Stanislaw Lem’s 1955 novel The Magellanic Cloud, and predating Gene Rodenberry’s Star Trek and Kubrick’s 2001, Ikarie XB-1’s influence can be seen on both – and on almost every other science-fiction vehicle that followed.

In Czech with English subtitles
