L'Apocalypse des animaux (1970)

My abject lack of French only added to the trippiness of this short section from L'Apocalypse des animaux, a weird and evocative French nature documentary which is remembered today primarily for its Vangelis soundtrack. The music and editing style that kick in around the 7:58 mark seems mind-bendingly ahead of its time for 1970:

Yeah, on the evidence of the music post 7.58 BoC definitely watched Apocalypse Des Animaux.

Always loved that album. Nearly as good as the Bladerunner soundtrack.
