INTERSTELLA 5555: THE 5TORY OF THE 5ECRET 5TAR 5YSTEM
Directed by Daisuke Nishio, Hirotoshi Rissen, Leiji Matsumoto, Kazuhisa Takenouchi, 2003, 1h08, France-Japan
Music by Daft Punk, Thomas Bangalter, Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo

An unscrupulous music executive and his lackey kidnap a blue-skinned alien techno band, rob them of their identities, pass them off as human, and foist them on an unsuspecting public on Earth. After their arrival and their impact on the human population, the members of the band try to piece back their identities, escape from the clutches of the evil music executive, and return to their own world. Daft Punk’s music meets Leiji Matsumoto’s designs for this animated musical.

Presented in partnership with the Washington Square Park Conservancy.
