A film consisting of black and white stills sequenced together. Screenplay written and directed by Chris Marker. In depredation caused by the aftermath of world war two, a man and the other leftover people who have survived the tragedy start researching in to time travel. The man, however has occurring flashbacks of moments from his childhood which are only captured in still images.
With the limitation of just still image/photographs and lack of colour, I felt this was quite a pleasure to watch. I’m almost completely in a trance from just watching the footage and listening to the narrators voice; which adds quite a nice contrast to the piece. I also think this particular, simple direction on its own is what makes this pretty original and striking compared to other short films.
