While at the Orly Airport observation deck, a boy sees a man shot. Shortly afterwards World War III breaks out and Paris is destroyed by nuclear weapons. As one of the survivors, the now grown man is chosen as part of an experiment in time travel because he has a strong grasp on a moment in the past--the image of the man being shot at the airport. He is successfully sent back in time. But once in the past, he falls in love with a girl, and defies orders to return and be with her

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( Visual )

23 editions published between 1967 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 304 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 261 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

Khānah siyāh ast( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in Persian and held by 193 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. "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."

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
