A stop-motion sci-fi cult classic of such cosmically epic proportions that it was awarded the 1973 Special Jury Prize at Cannes (a rare feat for animated films), Fantastic Planet is a work of exquisite psychedelia-infused surrealism.
In a truly trippy future on a far-away planet, humans (Oms) are routinely exterminated–but sometimes kept as pets–by giant fin-eared aliens (Traags), that reproduce through psychic communal meditation. One pesky Om escapes, launching an all-out war between the two species. This screening features a live score. Special ticket pricing: $12 general admission.
