Chris Marker Notes from the Era of Imperfect Memory

Tombeau Chris Marker

I would like to thank Etienne Sandrin for sending this photograph of Chris Marker’s gravesite in the Montparnasse cemetary. He wrote on April 2, 2014: “We have put – last Monday – Chris’s ashes in the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris.”

The maneki-neko (Japanese: 招き猫?, literally “beckoning cat”) is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman), usually made of ceramic in modern times, which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw… The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, or fortune cat in English.
