R.I.P.

“Rarely has reality needed so much to be imagined.”
–Chris Marker (1921-2012)

Chris Marker has died, and while I realize that most people probably have no idea who he is, seeing his film Sans Soleil in graduate school had a profound effect on my ideas of what film can be; in this case a unique amalgamation of documentary, abstract travel narrative, and poetic rumination on the nature of time.

Or not, you be the judge…

(There was a YouTube link to the full film here, but it has since been taken down, so you’ll have to go rent it or something.)
