new short fiction

San Francisco author Kerry Donoghue recently published her story “The Hungry” on the Fiction Circus.  She asked me to create an audio version of the story, which you can listen to here:

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.
