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

“Qui est La Collectionneuse?”
La Collectionneuse — she who collects — is the hostess of a cinematic salon for lovers of French film and culture. Every month, La Collectionneuse reaches deep into her stash of cinéma français— from rare shorts and scopitones to feature film discoveries, from challenging experimentation to lovable French classics— followed, as always, by drinks and conversations.
In the past, La Collectionneuse has hosted a cycle of films by Jacques Rivette at the Bob Baker theater, an outdoor screening of Truffaut’s Jules et Jim at Barnsdall Art Park, with wines from Silverlake Wine and live music by Tortoise, Le Magnifique intro-ed by none other than Jacqueline Bisset, a showcase of Rohmer’s 6 Moral Tales, and a month-long curated retrospective of Olivier Assayas, with Assayas in house for Q&As and presentations. Her screenings are usually followed by public conversations with artists— Assayas, Bisset, Jackie Raynal, Kim Gordon, Bruno Dumont, and Roxane Mesquida— as well as music and art, such as accordionist Andy Favre or Dosshaus’ unforgettable installation for Innocence.
For when La Collectionneuse collects, she gathers together not only her favorite films, but her favorite people.
