Knowledge is power in an alien world of Fantastic Planet (aka La Planète sauvage) where the oppressed Oms/humans rebel from their overseers, the Triages. With visuals consisting of stop-motion cut-out courtesy of artist and writer Roland Topor, it’s not surprising that this film is noted for its surrealist imagery. In fact, it’s Fantastic Planet’s bizarre aesthetics and an intricate sex scene make this animated feature most memorable. So let’s be honest, there could be no better way to get trippy than seeing this film with a live score at midnite…you know what we’re saying.

Morricone Youth is a New York City band formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music.
