La jetée : Sans soleil by Chris Marker( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in French and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sans soleil: This film addresses the themes of time, space, and geography. An unknown woman reads letters she has received from Sandor Krasna, a world-traveling freelance cameraman.
