Nothing else has ever looked or felt like this animated marvel. A politically-minded and visually inventive work of science fiction, it’s set on a distant planet where enslaved humans finally rebel against their violent oppressors, giant blue natives known as Draags. With its coolly surreal cutout animation, brilliant psychedelic jazz score, and wondrously inventive creatures and landscapes, this Cannes award-winning 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence. We’re showing it in a new DCP, courtesy of Janus Films.
