Join us for one of the most mind-bending animated films of all time – René Laloux’s sublime and surreal science fiction epic Fantastic Planet. Travel to another galaxy and planet where bloodshed and degradation are the norm. On the planet Ygam, the Draags – a race of technologically advanced blue humanoids – consider the tiny Oms – human descendants of Terra’s inhabitants – as ignorant animals, enslaving and slaughtering them as if they were vermin. With jaw-dropping imagery, animation from Czech-masters and an impassioned message that rings ever truer today, this is one intergalactic masterpiece that demands to be seen on the big screen.
Doors open at 6:00pm, Join us for a drink at the bar!
