Ciné-Club presents René Laloux’s La Planète sauvage (1973)

This animated tale follows the relationship between the small human-like Oms 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.

(Presented in French with English subtitles.)
