FANTASTIC PLANET (La planète sauvage)
Co-presented by the French Film and TV Office and Zebulon LA

Join your favorite blue aliens for a screening of 1973 cult French classic, Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage), the hypnotic sci-fi masterpiece by director René Laloux and illustrator Roland Topor. Based on the French sci-fi novel Oms en série by Stefan Wul, Fantastic Planet follows a revolutionary clash on the alien planet Ygam, where enslaved humans – Oms – are treated as pets by their giant native blue masters – Draags – in their meditation-based utopia. Developed at the Jirí Trnka Studios in the old Czech Republic, Fantastic Planet is a landmark of hallucinatory animation, thanks to Topor’s surreal, eerie creature and background designs, and an amazing, psychedelic soundtrack by French jazz pianist Alain Goraguer (sideman of Boris Vian and Serge Gainsbourg).

Dir. René Laloux, 1973, digital presentation, 72 minutes
Presented by La Collectionneuse (The Cinefamily)
