LA JETEE (1962 FRANCE) D/W: CHRIS MARKER P: ANTOLE DAUMAN
Marker claimed his brilliant short (approx 30 min.) was a "ghost of a film". Rather than using standard filming techniques, it's told through a series of still b/w images that fade in and out. A narrator tells the circular time travel tale with a surprise ending. With William Klein. Terry Gilliam borrowed the story for his four-times-as-long-mess 12 MONKEYS. See the original instead.
