Chris Marker Notes from the Era of Imperfect Memory

Chris Marker Blow Up – ARTE


Posted by ARTE, this is an insightful and quick-witted introduction to Chris Marker, the man, the filmmaker and the phenomenon. It goes quickly like Marker’s films, so is definitely worth watching several times. “Einmal ist keinmal,” as Benjamin said.

Blow Up is a series of videos produced by ARTE covering a diverse set of topics, with an emphasis on films & filmmakers, but also musicians and other cultural happenings & reminiscences. The full list of shows to date can be found at

There is much to enjoy, from the Velvet Underground to the masterful Antonioni film from which the series derives its name. I would even venture to say these videos, with their ‘essayistic’ approach, are prime examples of the caméra stylo predicted by Astruc and embraced/adopted by Marker.
