Fantastic Planet

1973 / 72min / DCP

DIRECTOR: RENé LALOUX

Human Oms rise up against their giant blue owners/ overseers in Laloux’s surreal cult animation, whose immediately recognizable images come from stop-motion cut-outs by artist and writer Roland Topor, who saves some of his most elaborate work for a celebrated sex scene. Alain Goraguer’s psych-out jazz score offers the ideal accompaniment to the film’s otherworldly landscapes and fabulous fauna, all adding up to an audio-visual experience without compare.
