On the Silver Globe Revisited

Document Thumbnail

On the Silver Globe is known to be the preeminent expression of Zulawski’s visionary ideas. Its shooting began in 1976, was halted in 1978 by the communist authorities, and then reconstituted in 1988. Digitally restored in 2016 – courtesy of the Polish Film Institute – it had its real first showing on the 20th of February at Lincoln Center in New York, just three days after the director’s death and 28 years after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, when the mono loudspeaker went down. Sound restoration is an example of the capabilities of modern technology in pursuing compromise between fidelity to the mono 35 mm magnetic original and digital 5.1 cinema in terms of sync, loudness, timbre, and spatial standards.
