abdlawllou
8/1 - 10:30PM
$12/free for members

Animation Breakdown is back with your favorite blue aliens in the 1973 cult French classic Fantastic Planet (La Planète Sauvage), the hypnotic sci-fi masterpiece by director René Laloux and illustrator Roland Topor, newly restored by Janus Films. Based on the French sci-fi novel Oms en série by Stefan Wul, Fantastic Planet follows a revolutionary clash on the alien planet Ygam, where enslaved humans—Oms—are treated as pets by their giant native blue masters—Draags—in their meditation-based utopia. Developed at the Jirí Trnka Studios in the old Czech Republic, Fantastic Planet is a landmark of hallucinatory animation, thanks to the eerie creature & backgrounds designs of surreal illustrator Roland Topor and the amazing psychedelic soundtrack by French jazz pianist Alain Goraguer (sideman of Boris Vian and Serge Gainsbourg).

Dir. René Laloux, 1973, DCP, 72 minutes

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Rivals

tom-and-jerry
8/6 - 11AM
$10/free for members and kids under 14

Since the beginning of time there have been heroes and their villains, anti-heroes and their foils, cats and the stubborn mice and birds that torment them. From big bad wolves trying to catch their next meal, to best frenemies forced to endure each others company, rivalry is a strong and load-bearing pillar of the Saturday Morning Cartoon world. Toms & Sylvesters and Jerrys & Tweety Birds have proven time and time again that everyone needs a worthy opponent, or even an unworthy one; Rocko has his neighbors the Bigheads, Wile E. Coyote has the Road Runner, and even Maggie Simpson has the baby with one eyebrow. So come and celebrate the time honored tradition of animated animosity with our favorite Saturday Morning rivalries!

Pajamas not mandatory, but encouraged. Complimentary cereal bar with a rotation of the best sugary cereals on the market (featuring our monthly mix) and a cash bar for the grown ups who want their sugar delivered in the form of a mimosa.

The Phantasmagoric Films of Piotr Kamler

8/28 - 7PM
$14/free for members

Animation Breakdown has crossed paths with many wondrous works throughout its adventures in programming, but when it comes to the films of Piotr Kamler, we never fail to take a pause in order to gather our collective jaws off the floor. Often labeled as science fiction, Kamler’s works explore the inner depths of imagination more than the far reaches of outer space, eschewing linear narratives for dynamic, hallucinatory symbolism rendered in everything from clay to ink, paper cut-outs, early CGI and even pinboard animation — all paired with startling musique concrète scores by the likes of Luc Ferrari and Bernard Parmegiani. Tonight we’ll eagerly peer into Kamler’s mind-expanding output, culminating with a rare 35mm screening of Chronopolis (his only feature film), an Egyptian-flavored cybernetic opus that immediately sucks you into a transcendent alternate universe with its own M.C. Escher-like laws of physics, space, time, and dream-logic. As alien as every sound and every moving part is, it feels vaguely comforting and familiar, as if you remember it from childhood or dreams. Fans of surrealist animators the Brothers Quay will see similarities to their earlier films, which were likely influenced by this monumental achievement.
