Ark 221 will be hosting a movie night featuring Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage) – a beautiful, surreal 1973 animated science fiction film.

Fantastic Planet is an adaptation of the French novel Oms en série, by Stefan Wul, where humans (or Oms, as they are called) are kept as pets by Draags (a sophisticated species of humanoid blue giants). The film is a French and Czech collaboration and won a Grand Prix at Cannes. (Directed by René Laloux, production designed by Roland Topor and animated by Jiří Trnka Studio.)

Preceding the screening will be a short film by Rita Piffer called Norma’s Fall and live music featuring Der-Buka hand drums starting at 7:30pm.
