"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

A Chris Marker double bill. 'La Jetee' is a science fiction short that takes a man from the future back to his childhood in pre-apocalypse Paris. His ability to make contact with a woman he once glimpsed may be humanity's last hope. The film makes use of still pictures to tell almost the entire story. It won first prize at the 1963 Trieste Film Festival and was the inspiration behind Terry Gilliam's 'Twelve Monkeys'. Whilst 'Sans Soleil' is Marker's landmark avant-garde documentary which compiles exotic footage from across the globe to provide a collage of 'the dreams of the human race'. A fictionalised cameraman provides commentary on the images through the letters he writes to a woman

1 edition published in 2003 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Jetâee : Following the nuclear devastation of World War III, a group of survivors trapped underground in Paris carry out experiments in time travel on prisoners in a grim attempt to escape extinction. The hero travels into the past before the bombs fell and encounters a woman he had glimpsed as a child at Orly Airport. He falls in love and chooses to remain with her rather than return to his hopeless future. -- Sans Soleil : Distinctions between fiction and non-fiction film dissolve in this personal journey through the fabric of Tokyo life, and other points around the world. The images that Marker captures are discussed by an imaginary cameraman via letters to an equally imaginary woman
