Revisiting Solaris

Based on the unfilmed last chapter of Stansiław Lem’s book Solaris, more than forty years after
Andrei Tarkovsky’s film of the same name, the actor Donatas Banionis reprises his role as Chris Kelvin. To materialise the landscape of Solaris, Narkevičius used a series of photographs from
1905 made by the Lithuanian symbolist painter and composer Mykalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis,
repurposing the same Black (Crimean) Sea that Tarkovsky himself had photographed to represent the mysterious ocean.
