TPH X PHOTO2022 PRESENT: PHOTOGRAPHY ON FILM
Chris marker double-bill! Sans Soleil: This experimental film by acclaimed French director Chris Marker collects footage recorded in various countries around the world and presents it in collage-like form. The movie features no synchronized sound, but instead ties the various segments together with music and voice-over narration, which ponders the topics such as memory, technology and society. As the scenes shift, locations range from Japan to Iceland to Africa, creating a truly international work.
La Jetee: Told mostly through a series of photos and with a voice-over narration, this is the story of a man in a post World War III Paris who is sent back in time. The man has two recurring images of his youth. The first is when he was a young boy on the observation deck at Orly airport where he saw a man shot and killed. The second image is that of a beautiful woman. Both images are of great importance to him as he learns just who and what they are.
La Jetée. (28 mins)
BOTH FILMS WILL BE SCREENED AS A DOUBLE-BILL.
THERE WON’T BE A BREAK.
