DONNIE DARKO: Friday Night Freakouts

March 31 @ 11:00 pm
The Frida Cinema, 305 E. 4th Street
Santa Ana, CA 90271 United States

The Frida Cinema presents director René Laloux's legendarily trippy 1973 animated classic FANTASTIC PLANET. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags’ oppression and violence.

Nothing else has ever looked or felt like Laloux’s animated marvel, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.
