Fantastic Planet

A Surreal Psychedelic Experience 5/9

Fourty-two years later, Rene Laloux's animated film Fantastic Planet remains an eerie and surreal psychedelic experience unlike any other. The Secret Celluloid Society presents the wildly imaginative restored sci-fi film Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage). The film follows the relationship between the small human-like Oms and their much larger blue-skinned oppressors, the Draags, who rule the planet of Ygam. While the Draags have long kept Oms as illiterate pets, this hierarchy shifts after an Om boy becomes educated, thanks to a young female Draag. This leads to an Om rebellion, which weakens the Draag control over their race. Will the Oms and the Draags find a way to coexist? Or will they destroy each other? Tickets to this screening are $5 general admission with a free popcorn and can be purchased in advance here.


France/Czechoslovakia, 1973, 137 min, 2K Digital, Dir. René Laloux, PG but unsuitable for small children due to nudity, violence and frightening scenes.
