Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem is an anime visualisation of Daft Punk’s second album Discovery. Produced by Toei Animation with visual supervision by legendary manga artist and anime director Leiji Matsumoto. A group of extraterrestrial musicians are kidnapped, brainwashed, and altered, mind and body, to be identical to ordinary humans. Under the control of their abductors, they become rock stars on Earth, playing their music and skyrocketing to massive fame. Can an alien pilot rescue the band, return their memories and get them home? Or will they be forced to play their part in the scheme of the evil, greedy music executives?

Music by Paisley Eva begins at 7 pm
Film starts at 9:30 pm
