"Polák's pioneering feature Ikarie XB 1 is one of the cornerstones of contemporary sci-fi cinema. It predates Star Trek and Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and was clearly an influence on both, as well as on almost every other science-fiction work that followed. Adapted from a novel by Stanislaw lem, the film is set in 2163 anfd follows a mission deep into space in search of alien life. During their perilous journey the crew confront the effects of a malignant dark star, the destructive legacy of the 20th century and, ultimately, the limits of their own sanity. With outstanding design and cinematography, Ikarie XB 1 is imbued with a seriousness and intelligence rarely seen in science-fiction cinema of the period."--Container

"The story pits against each other two worlds: a world of violence, and a world of tolerance. At the head of the first is the Marshal, a dictator intoxicated by power and glory; at the head of the other, Dr. Galen, a medical practitioner. Dr. Galen is backed only by his patients and the 'white disease' - an illness against which medical science is powerless. Dr. Galen is willing to give the world a drug against the infectious white disease provided that preparations for war are stopped, and succeeds only when the Marshal himself is infected with the disease."--Audio Brandon catalog
