France, 128 Minute Running Time
Language: French, Japanese, German, English English Sub-Titles

Shows Tuesday, April 2nd at 7pm as part of our Double Exposure series!
Chris Marker, filmmaker, poet, novelist, photographer, editor, and now videographer and digital multimedia artist, has been challenging moviegoers, philosophers, and himself for years with his complex queries about time, memory, and the rapid advancement of life on this planet. Marker's LA JETÉE is one of the most influential, radical science-fiction films ever made, a tale of time travel told in still images.

With SANS SOLEIL Marker, the cinema's globetrotter/essayist par excellence, travelled between Japan, Africa and Iceland to create his masterpiece Sans Soleil. Refiltering and synthesizing sounds and images with astonishing fluidity, Marker dissolves the distinctions between fiction and non-fiction film, offering the viewer the extraordinary sensation of simultaneously spanning the globe and being enclosed within someone's mind.
