Bridging the gap between adult sci-fi and children’s fable, Laloux’s visionary and prescient tale of the true cost of man-made utopia is certainly resonant today.

A perfect world of peace and enlightenment, Gandahar and its people are the result of years of genetic experimentation and mutation.

Suddenly Gandahar is under threat from an unknown enemy from the future, and in trying to protect it, those trying to prevent paradise lost discover that for some, it was never found.

France /North Korea 1988 Dir. René Laloux 83 min.


An underperforming office worker does everything  he can  in order to fit in, including turning to sinister wonder drug ‘Checkoo’… Erik Rosenlund’s latest animation is a firm festival favourite.
Sweden 2008 Dir. Erik Rosenlund 12 min.
