FANTASTIC PLANET: Live Scored by the Switched On Ensemble

  • Motion Media Arts Center 2200 Tillery Street Austin, TX, 78723 United States (map)


The Lifted Traces team returns with a gigantic, immersive film experience for one of the most psychedelic animated tales ever made.

The Lifted Traces team will transform the 8,000 sq ft warehouse space located at the school into a pop-up Fantastic Planet-themed movie theater just for you. Join us for a cocktail hour before each performance, photo booth, installations, small bites prepared on site by Austin Daily Press, limited edition merch, and beverages donated by Balcones Distillery, 4th Tap Brewing Co-op, Goodnight Loving Vodka, and more.

A supergroup featuring Joey Postiglione, Patrick Edwards, and Charlie Russell will perform a once-in-a-lifetime, concrete-shaking, brain-searing original score in accompaniment of the film.

ABOUT Hyperreal film club:

Hyperreal film club is a home for radical voices and collaborative art experiences in Austin, TX. Voted Austin Chronicle's Critic's Pick Best More-Than-Just-Film Series 2017.

The collective was originally created to promote diverse, idiosyncratic, and daring films with a devoted local following of artists and art lovers. Since then, HFC has expanded in scope to produce crowd-sourced VHS zines and dance parties for critical causes, overtaken theaters, bars, and galleries for re-scores, fashion shows, experimental AV festivals, and phantasmagoric live art installations.

This is only the beginning.
