Moscow: Creative Unit of Writers, 1972. Original Russian poster for the seminal 1972 science fiction film. This is the export variant, with text in English.
Often cited as one of the most important films in the history of cinematography, "Solaris" is a meditative psychological drama occurring mostly aboard a space station orbiting the fictional planet Solaris. The scientific mission has stalled out because the meager skeleton crew of three scientists have fallen into separate emotional crises, and the gaseous planet below them is beginning to look like the main suspect. An open ended and conceptually faithful adaptation of Lem's novel, concerning itself with the inability of the human species to communicate with other intelligent life forms, based simply on the fact that a more advanced life form would exist outside the sphere of human experience and understanding.
44.5 x 36 inches (113 x 91.5 cm). Rolled, on archival linen. Discreet restoration, else about Fine.
