Marina Vlady: Chris Marker, Tarkovsky et L’amitié

M

Exposition Chris Marker – Marina Vlady from La Cinémathèque française on Vimeo. « Chris Marker aimait beaucoup les cinéastes russes, notamment Andreï Tarkovski, dont il était l’admirateur et l’ami, et qu’il a filmé chez moi, dans les derniers jours de sa vie. Il lui a d’ailleurs permis de finir son dernier film, Le Sacrifice : c’est lui qui a apporté toute la technique chez moi, pour que Tarkovski puisse finir le...

France Culture Podcasts – Conversations on Chris Marker

F

We have been following with appreciation the podcasts of France Culture on the occasion of the phenomenal Sept Vies d’un Cinéaste exhibition/retrospective, conversations that touch on Chris Marker’s life, friendships and wisdom in a way that the written word has a harder time achieving – the Costa-Gavras conversation is exemplary in this regard. There is an intimacy to the spoken voice that comes through vividly, and the questions posed by Albane...

Chris + Andrei

Chris Marker at the funeral of Andrei Arsenevich Tarkovsky. Les deux maîtres. It is au revoir not adieu, one may only hope. If rockstars can reunite in heaven, why not filmmakers? Imagine a film that combines the already fathomless treasures of La Jetée and Stalker… Related posts: One Day in the Life of Andrei Arsenevich by Chris Marker Chris Marker’s Gifts to Patricio Guzmán On Chris Marker Philippe Dubois, “La Jetée de Chris Marker ou le...

Chris Marker: (Le livre impossible) by Maroussia Vossen

C

Out of the blue, we learned of a new and quite intimate book on Chris Marker (‘un centre mouvant’), written by his adopted daughter Maroussia Vossen.

This new book, which can be found at Amazon.fr currently, promises to be a welcome respite from scholarly publications, and an insight into the oft-guarded personal side of the auteur...

Letter to Alain Cuny by Chris Marker – Exhilaration

L

Here is the English translation of the recently unearthed ‘Lettre à Alain’, originally published in Libération to highlight the 1991 debut of the film L’Annonce faite à Marie, under the title “Chris Marker: ‘Something of a Miracle’, with the sub-title ‘In 1991, for the release of the first projections of L’Annonce faite à Marie [The Announcement Made to Marie], Chris Marker wrote to the ‘young’ filmmaker...

Letter à Alain de Chris Marker – Exhilaration

L

Though the context is in absentia, a letter of Chris Marker to Alain Cuny has suddenly appeared on the site www.derives.tv. The letter is from 1991, so the year of Marker’s 70th birthday. The word ‘relics’ somehow comes to mind. It was a Pink Floyd album title, and connotes as well a practice of conserving what remains behind when a great being has departed, often in a saintly or lama-esque context. Somehow the spirit of that being inheres...
