La Jetée

February 9, 2009

I found Chris Marker’s early film “La Jetée” on YouTube. This short 26-minute film is the inspiration for Terry Gilliam’s “Twelve Monkeys.” Although “La Jetée” was made in 1962, its narrative technique feels very ahead of its time. The entire film is constructed from still photographs, sound effects, and narration. Without using moving images, Chris Marker tells a profound story of memory, loss, and love.

Crazy for Chris Marker’s Films

This weekend, I discovered the films of Chris Marker.  His film “Sans Soleil” is most certainly a work of genius, and I look forward to working my way through his other titles.  Anyway, here are some Chris Marker related links:

“Cariñito”

Here’s my version of the chords for “Cariñito.”  I’m totally open to suggestions for improvement.

(Amazon link to the performance by Los Hijos del sol)

C             Am         F       G      C
Lloro por quererte, por amarte y por desearte.
G      C     G      C
¡Ay cariño! ¡Ay mi vida!
C           Am        F        G   C
Nunca, pero nunca me abandones cariñito.
[insert psychedelic solo]

G      C     G      C
¡Ay cariño! ¡Ay mi vida!
C           Am        F        G   C
Nunca, pero nunca me abandones cariñito.
G      C     G      C
No me abandones cariñito.
