Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This Polish sci-fier is set in the year 1999. Roman Wilhemi plays a TV reporter who witnesses the Martian invasion of Earth. He tries to spread the news, but the public considers his bulletin a mere replay of the 1938 Orson Welles hoax. The government knows the truth, but publicly derides Wilhemi as a madman so as to avoid widespread panic. This cynical slice of speculative fiction was originally released in Poland as Wojna Swiatow--Nastepne Stulecie.
