Chris Marker Notes from the Era of Imperfect Memory

Wexner Offers A Farewell to Movies


Last Updated on November 22, 2020 by bricoleur

Now available at The Wexner Center for the Arts’ Chris Marker online store, A Farewell to Movies | Abschied vom Kino, ed. Andres Janser, the catalog for the Chris Marker exhibition at Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, 2008. The catalog is 162 x 108 mm, 64 pages, 38 b/w ill., with texts in German and English.

Under that cryptic formula, cognoscenti will identify a familiar path to YouTube, and specifically toward my very latest opus: a one-minute-sixteen-second piece titled Leila Attacks, featuring a lovable fighting she-rat. I guess I may say I’m not exactly the self-complementing type, yet when considering the work I did there, I can but call it perfect. Linearity of action, frugality of editing, sobriety of dialogs, all that enhanced by the performance of an exceptional leading lady, who can beat it?

Leila Attacks can be seen in Chris Marker’s YouTube “Kosinki” account, still up in 2020, although the video is not able to be embedded, for some reason.
