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

This psychedelic French-Czech co-production, based on a story by French surrealist Roland Topor, tells the allegorical tale of a planet where a race of giants enslaves and oppresses its normal-sized neighbors, until the smaller people discover a novel way to fight back. Recently restored by Janus Films.

This feature will be preceded by René Laloux’s 10 minute short THE SNAILS.


*** Please Note: the 5:30 PM screening on Saturday, July 15 will be DCP format instead of 35mm, featuring the same Janus Films restoration. ***


Available at the AFS Cinema box office: 1.5″ soft enamel pins (blue dye metal with 4 color fill and 2 butterfly clutches) from PSA Press!
