FANTASTIC PLANET / WAKING LIFE
FANTASTIC PLANET
LA PLANETE SAUVAGE
1973, Argos Films, 72 min, France/Czechoslovakia, Dir: René Laloux

French director and animator Rene Laloux’s masterpiece is an astonishingly beautiful and otherworldly vision of a distant planet where humans are kept as pets by a race of gigantic, blue-skinned overlords called the Draags. With incredible design work by Roland Topor and a mind-blowing progressive rock score by Alain Goraguer. Winner of the Special Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1973. In French with English subtitles.


WAKING LIFE
2001, Fox Searchlight Pictures, 99 min, USA, Dir: Richard Linklater

Director Richard Linklater filmed his actors and then rotoscoped the footage to produce this surreal and cerebral animated wonder. Philosophical conversations between a young man (Wiley Wiggins) and the unusual characters he encounters cause him to question whether he is actually asleep or awake; among the actors, artists and thinkers heard here are Steven Soderbergh, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. “A work of cinematic art in which form and structure pursues the logic-defying (parallel) subjects of dreaming and moviegoing.” - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
