There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Inviting you to take a hallucinatory trip through the variegated twin minds of genius that are writer Roland Topor and filmmaker René Laloux is FANTASTIC PLANET,  the spellbinding, psychedelic animated classic which needs no introduction other than the vacant red eyes of the giant, blue Draags, an alien race who enslave humans on the planet Ygam — that is, until they find a novel way to rebel. With a hypnotic score from Alain Gorageur, the otherworldly wonder won the Grand Prix special jury prize at the 1973 Cannes film festival and immediately entered the consciousness of cinephiles, connoisseurs of the bizarre, and potheads alike.
