AF Ciné-club and the Austin Film Society will co-host four screenings of director René Laloux's LA PLANETE SAUVAGE (Fantastic Planet) in August. Based on a story by French surrealist Roland Topor, FANTASTIC PLANET tells the tale of a race of giants who oppress their average-size neighbors until the average-size people discover a novel way to fight back. This sci-fi looks strikingly alien even 45 years after its 1973 release. See FANTASTIC PLANET at AFS Cinema August 17th @ 7:00pm. JOIN US for this extraordinary film and experience. FANTASTIC PLANET tickets are available here.
