La Jetée

Each black-and-white frame is striking, dynamic, surprising, and tragic; they mark you forever. ” Adam Nayman, The Ringer

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.
