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.
