Everybody in Our Family
(Toată lumea din familia noastră)

Ikarie XB 1
A film by Jindřich Polák
Czechoslovakia, 1963

Blu-ray Special Edition

"Polák's groundbreaking celestial saga is every bit as impressive today as it was in 1963. Don't tell me Kubrick missed this one..."
Joe Dant

Jindřich Polák's pioneering and much-imitated feature Ikarie XB 1 is one of the cornerstones of contemporary science fiction cinema. It predates Star Trek and Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and was clearly an influence on both - as well as countless other sci-fi films and TV shows that followed.

This region-free Blu-ray special edition presents the film from a new 4K restoration and includes the short film The Most Ordinary of Occupations (Nejvšednější povolání, 1963), a filmed appreciation by Kim Newman, 20-page booklet... and more!
