PILOT PIRX'S INQUEST
Marek Piestrak Soviet Union, 1979
Adapted from a short story by Stanisław Lem, Pilot Pirx’s Inquest takes a hard sci-fi approach to its interrogation of what it means to be human. With an endearing tension between its 1970s brutalist design and futurist ideas, it makes for a fascinating, Twilight Zone-esque inquiry into A.I. ethics.
