Fin de Cinema returns with a double feature screening! We present two animated features by French director Rene Laloux, enlisting two Portland pop acts per film to reinvent each score as a live accompaniment.

Praise for Fantastic Planet:
“Don’t expect cartoon cutesy here: The focus is closer to Dali than Disney, with a touch of Che Guevara thrown in.” –Wired

“Laloux’s film is a provocative foray into the psychology of state-sponsored terror…it is difficult to watch any scene without being aware of its symbolic and metaphorical potential.” –Senses of Cinema

    Fantastic Planet is one of my all-time favorites! Excellent (and hard to find) soundtrack too. Would be great to hear live interpretation of the soundtrack.

    I turned a lot of people on to this movie back in the day.

    I would love to win because it would be a great time

    As an animation student, René Laloux was my hero. His other works are equally mindblowing. I’d be super grateful for the tickets to this. Cheers!

    I would love to win a pair of free tickets since I have never won a pair of tickets to anything before. Also, I just saw a posting for this on a friend’s facebook page. I had never heard of it before. The picture grabbed my attention.

  10. Payal September 27, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    Wow, I just read the whole description of the movie. What an interesting concept! Wondering if I can find the book it was based on, would be a great way to practice my french!

    I want to have my mind blown, like this

  12. Lizzer September 27, 2012 at 3:28 pm #

    Pick me! I am an aspiring animator and love to be inspired.

  13. April Hoffmann September 27, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

    Oh yes yes yes yes yes please- Laloux plus live soundtrack- unforgettable for sure- I would love tickets.

    I’ve never won anything from this site, but tried many times!

  15. jenette September 27, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    I’ve never been to any of the Fin de Cinema events, but I love film with live performance, and I love Holocene. Please?

    I first saw this on Night Flight when I was wee, and that… sadistic, laughing tree… hand… *thing* still haunts my dreams. I could use a little trauma booster, unhinged from reality.

    This would also totally make up for not winning tickets to Dirty Three. That’s right – I’m shamelessly hedging my bets. Because you can’t go wrong with either show!

  17. Robin September 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    Pick me! I love animation (the quirkier the better) and I’ve never been to Holocene… (I’m ashamed to admit that!)

    Fantastic Planet is one of those obscure and underappreciated yet brilliant films. There’s a particular mind-bending scene that will have you tripping the light fantastic. The imagery is amazing. Its definitely worth every penny and to see it enhanced with live music sounds incredible! I wasn’t even aware of Light Years so I am very intrigued to have this experience. I’d love to bring friends and turn them on to this.

    This is baller. So want to go.

  20. Kendra September 28, 2012 at 10:31 am #

    Please pdxpipeline gods, bless me with these tickets so i can finally enter through the gates of the all mighty holocene and indulge in these most excellent of festivities! Amen

    I love the scene in ‘Fantastic Planet’ when Tiva teaches Terr to break crystals with his voice. If only we could do that on earth – sing down doors, smash barricades with songs, break bank vaults with opera notes…

  22. Annie September 28, 2012 at 1:22 pm #

    i want to win and go please please please i never win anything :)

  23. Bill Novotny September 29, 2012 at 1:30 am #

    Man I hate these contests where you have to try and say something cool to win tickets.
    Never been to Holocene and never seen Fantastic Planet.
    Am totally up for a new experience

  24. Jenn L September 29, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

    yes! pick me pick me!

    The Super Groovy Cosmic Bus loves animated films and wants to enjoy as much art as possible.
