Stranger Than Fiction Screens Sans Soleil

S

As a friend of a friend used to say of the voices in his head: “THIS JUST IN!” Stranger than Fiction, an exclusive documentary film series followed by live discussions with filmmakers, has just announced its 2014 Spring / Summer lineup. The series begins tonight (May 6) at 8pm, with a screening of Chris Marker’s 1983 classic SANS SOLEIL, followed by a discussion with filmmaker Jem Cohen (MUSEUM HOURS), who cites Marker as a key influence in his own work...

Letter to Theresa by Chris Marker – Behind the Veils of Sans Soleil

August 19 – Year: Unknown Original: Fax Dear Theresa (and all the gang), Don’t apologize: perhaps one thousand people wished to ask me these questions, but I never gave them a chance to ask. In fact, the only opportunity where I was in a position to talk about Sans Soleil (I note that, in spite of me putting in the film itself the three titles of the Mussorgsky songs cycle, in Russian Без Солнца, in English SUNLESS and in French, people in US always...

Criterion Releases La Jetée & Sans Soleil on Blu-Ray

As you probably know by now, swimming as we are in era of no news is new news, Chris Marker’s incomparable masterworks La Jetée and Sans Soleil have been released again, this time on Blu-Ray by Criterion. Originally paired on DVD in a French edition by Arte Video in 2003, the films came to Criterion DVD in 2007. I believe some of the extras on the Blu-Ray edition, released last week on February 7, 2012, are new, others appearing already on the earlier release...

La Jetée Book by Chris Darke

The Archive, Darke relates, homes two treasures: the film’s twin – an alternative version of La Jetée – and a workbook ‘containing an editing plan and a collection of correspondence between Marker and Jacques Ledoux, the former director of the Film Archive’ (13), both of which served as principal displays in Chris Marker: A Grin Without a Cat, the Whitechapel Gallery installation that Darke co-curated in London with Christine van Assche and Magnus Af Petersens...

CHRIS MARKER, Catalog, © Cinémathèque française, 2018, 104-109 Parmi les mots qu’on accumule allègrement pour qualifier le génie protéiforme de Chris Marker (romancier, essayiste, éditeur, critique, cinéaste, vidéaste, dessinateur, artiste multimedia, musicien même), il en est un qui manque, et serait la condition de tous les autres: archiviste. Marker en a peut-être suggéré la règle, en passant, comme il fait toute chose, au début de l’acte IV de Sans...

Chris Marker Raindeer animation stop motion

Happy Holidays.

"Although the use of drawings, photographs, or other still images within a film became more common with the films of Jean-Luc Godard in the mid-1960s, the use of animated techniques was still rather rare for this period. Chris Marker’s use of animation techniques was therefore rather unique for an art film of this time. The lack of discussion of animation within Marker’s works, then, is a curious omission."
