For years, surrealist animated film Fantastic Planet quietly existed as a forgotten classic except for film aficionados and art house junkies. In a world ruled by the blue Draags who enslave and slaughter humans (here called Oms), a young female Draag named Tiva takes in a child Om as a pet, who she calls Terr. But as soon as Tiva and Terr grow up, Terr runs away and finds a hidden tribe of Oms escaping persecution and death. Now they must try to find a means to escape to Fantastic Planet for their salvation. Now his trippy '70s sci-fi film will surely find a new audience who can appreciate its allegorical narrative and striking imagery.
