A Spaced-Out July
From Lem (Stanisław) to LEM (Lunar Excursion Module, Apollo’s moon lander), things get a little spacey at The Cinematheque this July as we mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission and humanity’s first steps on the moon; append June’s Claire Denis retrospective with screenings of her recent (and transgressive ) science-fiction drama High Life; premiere a sparkling restoration of Ikarie XB 1, a visionary 1963 Czech film (based on a Stanisław Lem novel) that prefigures important masterworks of science-fiction cinema to come; and revive two of those masterworks, Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (in last year’s Christopher Nolan-supervised 50th-anniversary restoration) and Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris (also based on a Lem novel).
