ARTIST OF THE MONTH: René Laloux -animator/ galactic visionary

This is my all-time favorite animation from my childhood:: AZ IDÖ URAI :: Les Maitres du Temps [Lords of Time]. It is the 1981 masterpiece of Renê Laloux, one of my favorite artists & big inspiration, who co-produced this movie with a Hungarian animation studio, so I always thought that it was a Hungarian production. I later discovered Laloux's surreal imaginary world and was floored. Way ahead of its time with timeless messages.
[the first video is in the original Hungarian, in case you were wondering...unfortunately, I don't think this was ever formatted to English audience]
