Anthropology meets surrealist art in a film about the coldly intellectual, logical Traags and the wild, passionate, heartfelt Oms. Manages to be both of our world and somehow not, shucking off any influences and finding a weird wonder all its own. (Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly)

France | 72 min | R | HD Projection | René Laloux

Slaves and masters dominate the narrative of the faraway world of Ygam. Set around the lifespan of Ter, a minute human shaped Om slave, and pet, of the giant blue alien Draags. Escaping into the wilderness and with a device used for intellectual advancement of the Draags, Ter finds refuge and support from fellow Om's. Using the learning tool, he finds that knowledge is power and then sets to use the new found knowledge to revolt against the Draag masters... (IMDB)
