A group of astronauts land on the dark side of a distant planet to found a new civilization. But as the Elder of the community die, the new society progressively deteriorates. The settlers, whose number is rapidly growing, turn little by little into a tribe torn by internal fights. When the last survivor, a reporter who records images of daily life, is hailed as a messiah by the second generation, he is horrified by the crimes carried out in his name. Meanwhile, during an exploratory expedition to the other side of the sea, the warriors discover the existence of a powerful species of bird-shaped monsters… On the Silver Globe is perhaps the grandest expression of Żuławski’s visionary artistry.
