* What, one might ask, is the format “à l'italienne”? Well, here you go:

In printing, an Italian format designates a book format in the width direction. It is the equivalent of landscape mode in digital. The Italian-style format was popularized in Italy by the publication of fumetti, comics in a small format in the 1950s and 1960s. In contrast, the French format designates a book format in the direction of height.

Jean-Pierre Gorin reflects the mirror house of Sans Soleil

From describing visits to Krazy Katovich Chris Marker's atelier to a wide-ranging, associative reflection on Sans Soleil, Jean-Pierre Gorin travels through the cuts, sequences, illusions, allusions, sign-systems, methodology, non-methodology, historical moments from Sei Shōnagon to Rousseau to the very present NOW of a baby Martian girl learning the rituals of this planet.
