thefilmsiveseen Film: La Jetée

Director: Chris Marker
Chris Marker's short film, La Jetée, was innovative and captivating for reasons that still connect with viewers today. The plot, which centers on a man in a destroyed, post WWIII France, is told (almost) entirely through narration over still images. The man has been captured and enslaved by scientists who send him traveling through time in search of a way to save humankind. Does this sound familiar? It has been the basis for many films since, most famously, Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys. There is more to Marker's story, though. The enslaved man is first shown as a boy on a pier who sees the face of a woman from afar. He remembers her through time, and uses this memory to travel to back her during his enslavement. He is able to form a bond with her, and she never questions where he comes from or where he goes when the scientists bring him back to the present. Through their escapades, they will encounter a crucial moment, which is the key to this film. Questions are raised on the purpose of existence, the morality of experimentation, and the importance of the survival of the human race versus one's own personal experience. Marker wrote and directed this story in the early 60s, and made a parallel film decades later called Sans Soleil (which will be tonight's movie). Perhaps I should have waited to see the latter so I could discuss how the themes connect, but I was so impressed by La Jetée that I wanted to write about it while it was still fresh. Sci-fi and moviemaking technology have both come a long way since then, but the power of the film's imagery and messages still remain strong.

  •   seoul_brutha for my postdoc project, i'm thinking of exploring #chrismarker's photographs of the #dprk from the late '50s. a gesture that runs quietly against the nuclear orientalism so pervasive to its contemporary discourse. 1w
