Philippe Dubois, “La Jetée de Chris Marker ou le cinématogramme de la conscience”

P

I’m seaching still for the full text of this presentation, published in Théorème 6: Recherches sur Chris Marker (Paris, Presses Sorbonne Nouvelle, 2002), and whose table of contents were published here a while back. Hopefully it might be available still somewhere, as it contains a great selection of texts on Marker. An excerpt follows, and then a link to the presentation (no embed code was available). “La Jetée” de Chris Marker ou le...

You Only Live Twice Set at La Jetée’s Orly Airport

Y

You Only Live Twice: Sex, Death and Transition By Chase Joynt and Mike Hoolboom Coach House, 152 pages, $14.95 On the day of French director Chris Marker’s death, two movie artists meet at the Orly Airport. It’s a place of professional interest, since Marker, a favourite New Wave cineaste, set a pivotal scene in his 1962 film, La Jetée, here. The film involves time travel such that in this particular scene the protagonist witnesses his own death, and so for trans...

William Gibson on La Jetée

W

“…nothing I had read or seen had prepared me for it. Or perhaps everything had, which is essentially the same thing.” – William Gibson From: ‘Thrilling and prophetic’: why film-maker Chris Marker’s radical images influenced so many artists – theguardian.com William Gibson, novelist I first saw La Jetée in a film history course at the University of British Columbia, in the early 1970s. I imagine that I would have read...

La Jetée Commentaire, Chris Marker

L

Ciné-Roman Ceci est l’histoire d’un homme marqué par une image d’enfance. La scène qui le troubla par sa violence, et dont il ne devait comprendre que beaucoup plus tard la signification, eut lieu sur la grande jetée d’Orly, quelques années avant le debut de la troisième guerre mondiale. A Orly, le dimanche, les parents mènent leurs enfants voir les avions en partance. De ce dimanche, l’enfant dont nous racontons l’histoire...

La Jetée: Academy One by J.G. Ballard

L

This strange and poetic film, a fusion of science fiction, psychological fable and photo-montage, creates in its unique way a series of bizarre images of the inner landscapes of time. Apart from a brief three-second sequence—a young woman’s hesitant smile, a moment of extraordinary poignancy, like a fragment of a child’s dream—the thirty-minute film is composed entirely of still photographs. Yet this succession of disconnected images is a perfect means...

La Jetée Back in Print

L

MIT Press and Zone Books have announced the re-printing of the book version of Chris Marker’s La Jetée ciné-roman, originally published in 1996 but out of print for some time (imperfect memory, as promised). J.G. Ballard’s quote on the inner flap – applicable as it happens to his own “strange and poetic” work – has always struck me as on the mark: This strange and poetic film, a fusion of science fiction, psychological fable and...
