What's it About

Subjugated by the Draags, a race of blue aliens forty feet tall, the humanoid Oms live like enslaved pets on the far-away planet of Ygam. A struggle for equal rights ensues, however, when a fearless Om named Terr (Baugin) escapes and begins to organize his fellow creatures for a revolt.

Why we love it

Winner of the Grand Prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival (unprecedented for an animated motion picture), Laloux's mesmerizing sci-fi classic still hits the mark with its affecting mix of trippy graphics and progressive politics. Laloux's imaginative allegory about totalitarian society benefits immensely from Roland Topor's psychedelic art and Alain Goraguer's futuristic soundtrack. The result is a wild ride  brainy, eye-catching, and unforgettable. Adventuresome movie lovers, visit this "Planet"!
