Happy Birthday Chris Marker!

We would like to invite all visitors—Marker admirers worldwide—to wish Chris Marker a Happy Birthday / Bon Anniversaire. Tomorrow, on July 29th, 2010, he will turn 89. It is indescribable what he has accomplished and continues to accomplish, but we can hope to convey a feeling, a set of feelings: celebration, admiration, and heartfelt wishes for health & many more moments of happiness (hold the black leader).

We also wish to acknowledge a celebratory discount to mark this occasion on the part of the always gracious Wexner Center Store:

In honor of Chris Marker’s 89th birthday, the Wexner Center Store is discounting all items in the Chris Marker Store 20%.

bon anniversaire chris markerSale starts at 12am CEST (Central European Summer Time) and ends 11:59pm EST (Eastern Standard Time) July 29, 2010.
