Rene Laloux’s Le Planete Sauvage

In June we chose to feature Rene Laloux’s Le Planete Sauvage (AKA Fantastic Planet), an hallucinatory animated feature from 1973. The film was preceded by some choice shorts from US animator Suzan Pitt, including the film Asparagus which was regularly screened before David Lynch’s Eraserhead for two years on the midnight movie circuit.

This screening took place in the ¬†Banshee Labyrinth¬†cinema in the undergrounds of Edinburgh’s old town.
