This week’s screening will be an sci-fi animation film.
La planete sauvage (Fantastic Planet, France, 1973)
Director: Rene Laloux
French with English subtitles, 72 minutes
Fantastic Planet tells the story of “Oms”, human-like creatures, kept as domesticated pets by an alien race of blue giants called “Draags”. The story takes place on the Draags’ planet Ygam, where we follow our narrator, an Om called Terr, from infancy to adulthood. He manages to escape enslavement from a Draag learning device used to educate the savage Oms — and begins to organise an Om revolt. The imagination invested in the surreal creatures, music and sound design, and eerie landscapes, is immense and unforgettable. (eurekavideo)
