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

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

22 editions published between 1967 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 289 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 256 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

Level 5 by Chris Marker( Visual )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

41 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."
