Fantastic Planet

René Laloux
1973 - France / - 1h12
The planet Ygam is peopled by giant androids called the Traags. They breed tiny human beings whom they call Oms. But one day, young Tiwa's Om proves to be more intelligent and sparks an uprising...

La Planète sauvage (Fantastic Planet) won the Grand Prix special jury award at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, and has now become a cult classic. Resulting from the collaboration between René Laloux and Roland Topor, this ecological and political fable was one of the very first forays into science fiction animation.
The film has been restored for its 50
th anniversary and the 2023 colour-grading respects its original hues and colours. It also coincides with the release of L'Odyssée de La Planète sauvage, published by Capricci, and written by Fabrice Blin and Xavier Kawa-Topor.

Screenings : wednesday 24 - 4:45 pm - 400 Coups - 5 - presented and followed by a debate with Xavier Kawa-Topor and Fabrice Blin - auteurs de L’Odyssée de La Planète sauvage
