In this animated neo-noir sci-fi thriller set in the year 2200, private detective Aline Ruby and her android partner Carlos Rivera are hired by a wealthy businessman to track down a notorious hacker. On Mars, they descend deep into the underbelly of the planet's capital city where they uncover a darker story of brain farms, corruption, and a missing girl who holds a secret about the robots that threatens to change the face of the universe.

Please note: The Friday and Wednesday showings will be English dubbed; the Saturday, Sunday, and Monday showings will be in the original French (with English subtitles). Both versions are very, very good.

“Ultra-cool and dazzlingly animated.” David Ehrlich, indieWire

Mars Express at once feels rich in its design, and complex in its stories, but at its heart it’s asking the question that most works of art ask: what does it mean to be human?” Shelagh Rowan-Legg, ScreenAnarchy
