IKARIE XB 1 ICARUS XB 1

The year is 2136 and humanity sets off on a journey aboard the gigantic space ship Icarus XB 1 to explore Earth-like planets and search for extra-terrestrial life. Alas, the further the crew ventures from their home planet, the harder their mental health and solidarity as a team are put to the test. Jindřich Polák's science fiction film broke ground for the genre and is captivating in its extraordinary spaceship design, strong ensemble cast and psychological depth. For over 40 years, the US-American cut of the film dominated its reception, before a 2016 digital restoration finally made the original ending available again.
