French Animation Programme – Fantastic Planet
The Projector is proud to team up with Voilah! French Festival to bring you a series of cult French animation classics. There’s something for everyone – from coming-of-age tales set in the Middle East, a peek into the secret life of a Parisian cat, to adventures into mesmerising faraway planets.
A gloriously psychedelic epic reminiscent of early Yayoi Kusama, Fantastic Planet is a manic observation of cyclical oppression and struggle through the lives of humanoid creatures in a distant world. Dissolving the lines between sci-fi , fantasy and horror, this deceptively abstract film is like entering a strange dream where nothing yet everything makes sense – a rich allegorical tapestry that’s a delight for both young and old.
