Fantastic Planet

  • Dir: René Laloux

  • France/Czechoslovakia, 1973, 72minmins

And now for something completely different. A psychedelic stop-motion fable of humans and giant blue humanoids locked into a destructive struggle of death and oppression that rages across planets. Illustrated from the ever-fertile imagination of painter and filmmaker Roland Topor, this ever-surprising film offers a Moses of the future, the human orphan Terr, who is rescued and raised by the dominant Draags. But Terr eventually leads his people on an embattled quest for freedom across the galaxy and then…creates a new and better world back home.
