“Every bit as remarkable as FANTASTIC PLANET.”
Sight & Sound

“GWEN took me to completely new places, on every level.”
—Sébastien Laudenbach, Director of THE GIRL WITHOUT HANDS (2016)

In a world of sand, telephones fall from the sky, denizens sing the discounts of a sales catalog as hymnal, and a very young boy is missing. Can he be found before the dangers of the unknown find him? The world of GWEN is the animated post-apocalyptic wasteland just beyond FANTASTIC PLANET. Mysterious, completely unknown, and utterly exciting — discover its charms when it hits the screen. Presented in a new restoration.
