La Jetee: by Chris Marker

La Jetee is a French science fiction film comprised of stills with sound to accompany it. It was created by Chris Maker in 1962 and tells the story of  a post-nuclear war experiment in time travel. We were presented with the film as inspiration/an example for the exercise that we would do later that morning.

What is particularly clever about the construction of this film is that you really don’t feel like you’re missing out on movement.  The images use are zoomed in on and zoomed out.
