Chris Marker, Cinéaste (1921â2012)

$7.00 - $9.00


Filmmaker Chris Marker has passed away one day after his ninety-first birthday. Marker (born Christian François Bouche-Villeneuve) was one of the world’s most highly regarded and experimental figures in cinema. His classic fiction film and best-known work, La Jetée, was made in 1962; his first feature-length documentary was produced a decade before. Marker’s documentary work includes profiles of the artists Matta and Christo, and film directors Tarkovsky and Kurosawa. Marker’s film works make deliberate use of a restricted visual palette, adopting the techniques of cinema’s silent era, using dissolves, subtitles and montage effects.
