"La Jetée" was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam's film "Twelve Monkeys" and is almost entirely narrated using black and white stills. After Paris is destroyed in a third world war, the survivors are forced to retreat underground where scientists conduct strange time-travel experiments in an effort to escape to a better past or future. In "Sans Soleil", an unknown woman reads the writings of a cameraman who travels the world to produce a study of "the dreams of the human race"; he is particularly attracted to the two extremes of Japan and Africa, and discusses the images that he creates with the woman

Le joli mai by Chris Marker( Visual )

39 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A striking look at Paris in the Spring of 1962, a year after the end of the Algerian War and the first time that France was at peace since 1939. The filmmakers interview recently arrived African immigrants as well as longtime Parisians to create a portrait of Paris in the aftermath of two wars. Utilizing his unique interview style, director Chris Marker puts his subjects at ease to such a degree that they appear to welcome his questions, revealing their hopes and anxieties as well as the enormous optimism and possibility of the era. Whether he is interviewing stock brokers outside the Paris bourse, or young lovers, Marker's camera captures the individualism and dignity of the Parisians he encounters. The interviewees include a worker priest who has embraced militant unionism, a salesman who claims that he is a slave to work and money, three sisters from the 16th Arrondissement, and a student from Dahomey. Marker's film captures a bygone era before home movie cameras became widely available, when men and women were unaware of there own image on camera. The resulting innocence and openess captured during the film's interviews is striking from todays vantage point

Loin du Việt-Nam = Far from Vietnam by Chris Marker( Visual )

20 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the work of a number of filmmakers who were opposed to the U.S. involvement in Vietnam but to varying degrees and for varying reasons. The fragmentary structure of at least seventeen different sections has been shaped by Marker so that the final effect is quite open-ended and coherent. At the centre is the sense of European impotence in the context of the war

Chris Marker, La jetée by Janet Harbord( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chris Marker's legendary "ciné roman" ("film novel") La Jetée is considered one of the greatest and most influential experimental films of all time. This short film - a postapocalyptic story composed almost entirely of black-and-white still photographs - has been praised by cultural theorists and Netflix subscribers alike. In this illustrated study of La Jetée, Janet Harbord focuses in part on the film's treatment of time - its shifts from a pre-war past to a projected future a further future of the future (each with its own signature images and sound) - arguing that in this way it addresses the nature of consciousness and the simultaneity of time-frames that we inhabit. Harbord moves easily from a close reading of the film to discussions of broader cultural issues, lucidly piecing together the enigma that is La Jetée

Melding retro-futuristic sci-fi imagery and reflections on traumas in Japanese history into a provocative visual and philosophical puzzle, Level Five 'belongs equally to the past, the present and the future...'"--Container
Khānah siyāh ast by Furūgh Farrukhzād( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in Persian and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film about the leprosy colony in Tabriz, Iran, is a compassionate portrait of forgotten people. Straightforward yet sympathetic, the film affords dignity to its subjects, particularly through Farrokhzad's striking poem read by the poet herself. The House Is Black has heavily influenced the modern Iranian cinema of such great filmmakers as Abbas Kiarostami and Mohsen Makhmalbaf, who called it "the best Iranian film." It provides, in the film's own words, "a vision of pain no caring human being should ignore."

Respectively speaking, these cities are symbols of the country's past, present and future. The trilogy constitutes a sampling of a country in transition, told in little over 30 minutes

Immemory : a cd-rom by Chris Marker( )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Immemory, Chris Marker has used the format of the CD-Rom to create a multi-layered, multimedia memoir. The reader investigates 'zones' of travel, war, cinema, and poetry, navigating through photographs, film clips, music, and text, as if physically exploring Marker's memory itself. The result is a veritable 21st-century Remembrance of Things Past, an exploration of the state of memory in our digital era. With it, Marker has both invented a literary form and perfected it"--Publisher description
