sarahlhayton From the book of the film La Jetée by Chris Marker. "This is the story of a man, marked by an image from his childhood. The violent scene that upset him, and whose meaning he was to grasp only years later, happened on the main jetty at Orly, the Paris airport, sometime before the outbreak of World War III." https://vimeo.com/46620661 #LaJetée #ChrisMarker #ParisOrly #PostApocalypticTimeTravel #PentaxSpotmatic 3h

ceciliamasks "When men die they enter into history. When statues die they enter into art. This botany of death is what we call culture". - "Les Statues Meurent Aussi", French essay film from 1953 by Alain Resnais, Chris Marker & Ghislain Cloquet.
Today's mask inspiration- the African historical art & masks that were made not to decorate a wall but to act as tools in rituals & ceremonies.
The film (Statues also die) was exploring how colonialism invaded & killed the living statues of the colonialised culture. Because of this critic of colonialism half of the film was banned in France until the 1960s.
I also believe that masks have a purpose beyond the decorative- they can be a window to an Otherness- a subconscious, a collective past or a personal dream world.

bobbyannafilm if you feel stressed, during your chaotic human routine, just think of Chris Marker's short, Cat Listening to Music
