Thursday 08.03.18. – 8pm: MK Animated | Fantastic Planet
MK Animated | Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage)
(French with English Subtitles)
La Planète Sauvage is a surreal, animated sci-fi fable of extraordinary beauty, cruelty, and strangeness. It used to circulate widely in the VHS era, when it was recognized as one of the most important animated films aimed at adults.
This animated tale follows the relationship between the small human-like Oms (a play on the French word “homme”) and their much larger blue-skinned oppressors, the Draags, who rule the planet of Ygam. While the Draags have long kept Oms as illiterate pets, this hierarchy shifts after an Om boy becomes educated, thanks to a young female Draag. This leads to an Om rebellion, which weakens the Draag control over their race. Will the Oms and the Draags find a way to coexist? Or will they destroy each other?
MK Animated Series
Mobile Kino has been sifting through the archives to find a selection of classic animated feature films to include in our new ongoing film series – MK Animated.
Animation in film has come a long way over the years with many different forms hitting our screens and taking us to places we would have never imagined. Steam-Boat Willie and the beginning of Micky Mouse changed the cinematic landscape and set sail to a new era of film-making. Traditional animation evolved before our eyes with feature films and television cartoon series introducing us to Bugs Bunny and his friends, bringing our favorite comic book stories to life, and filling our childhood memories with a catalog of hand drawn creations. The art-form has matured over the decades with the introduction of 3D animation, Stop-Motion, Clay-Motion and now with the release of LOVING VINCENT we are witnessing the first ever oil painted animated feature film. Join Mobile Kino to rediscover some of the milestone films while also introducing us to what’s new in the world of animation.
