Like every science fiction writer, Stanislav Lem tried to go beyond the known to feel, see, and get to know the unknown. And sometimes he succeeded. In literature, but not in cinema. About 40 adaptations of Lem's works have been produced, but it is considered that none came close to what Lem and his readers knew. Why? Film critic and fan of Stanislav Lem, Yaroslav Pidgora-Gvyazdovsky, will try to explain this in his lecture.

Moderator: Anastasia Kholyavka
