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 and screening in 35mm.

Join us after the film on Friday, August 17, for a 70s international psych set by DJ Adult Themes.
