Last weekend my boyfriend surprised me with a cinema visit. We went to see La Planète Sauvage. Doesn’t ring a bell? I had never heard of it either, but it is definitely worthwhile to watch.
La Planète Sauvage is a French animated science fiction film created by René Laloux in 1973. It shows a distant future on a faraway planet where blue giants rule and oppressed humans rebel against these blue machine-like leaders.
Besides the very funky, soft porn 70’s soundtrack and psychedelic visuals the story is intriguing. It puts humans in a very different position than our current one: humans are treated like rat-like vermin, while some are tamed and held as pets. But the humans have a capacity to learn quickly and start to outsmart their blue giant oppressors. I won't spoil the ending. :)
What has this to do with trend research, you might ask? A good sci-fi movie expands your vision on the world as it is and makes your mind go into unexpected directions. Check out the trailer to get a glimpse of this fantastic planet and expand your mind.
