To mark the centenary of the great science fiction writer Stanislaw Lem, we present this tribute in collaboration with the Polish Cultural Institute and the University of Leeds. Legendary stop motion animators the Quay Brothers will be appearing in person to present their new short film primer, 11 Preliminatory Orbits Around Planet Lem, alongside Maska, a beautiful adaptation of one of his short stories made in 2010. Also screening is another rarely screened Lem adaptation, Roly Poly made by Polish master Andrzej Wajda in 1968. A panel discussion follows, exploring Lem’s legacy.
