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

La batalla de Chile : "On September 11, 1973, President Salvador Allende's democratically-elected Chilean government was overthrown in a bloody coup by General Augusto Pinochet's army. Patricio Guzmán and five colleagues had been filming the political developments in Chile throughout the nine months leading up to that day. The bombing of the Presidential Palace, during which Allende died, would now become the ending for Guzmán's seminal documentary ... [a] chronicle of that country's open and peaceful socialist revolution, and of the violent counter-revolution against it."--Container

Loin du Việt-Nam = Far from Vietnam by Chris Marker( visu )
16 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 268 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
Giraudoux par lui-même; images et textes présentés by Jean Giraudoux( Book )
2 editions published in 1952 in French and held by 262 libraries worldwide
Chris Marker, La jetée by Janet Harbord( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 238 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
L'aveu = Confession by Costa-Gavras( visu )
2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in German and French and held by 230 libraries worldwide
Based on a harrowing true story, the film presents the history of an influential Czechoslovak dignitary who, in the early fifties, was abducted, imprisoned, and interrogated by fellow members of his country's Communist ruling party, their intentions vague, their methods terrifying
Khānah siyāh ast ( visu )
1 edition published in 2005 in Persian and held by 192 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. "Khānah siyāh ast" 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."
Level 5 by Chris Marker( visu )
20 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 180 libraries worldwide
"...a hallucinatory visual essay, half documentary, half fiction, on memory, tragedy, and early digital culture. A woman (Catherine Belkodja), haunted by the loss of her lover, works on programming a video game about World War II's Battle of Okinawa. 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
