La Jetée by Chris Marker

Chris Marker's film La Jetée (1962) is every students entry into moving image and art school top ten filmography must watch list. I first viewed this film on my Foundation Art & Design course when LCC (London College of Communication) used to be called London School of Printing & Distributive Trades in London, at the glamorous Elephant & Castle. A pivotal film short inspiring the likes of Director Terry Gilliam to make his film Twelve Monkeys (1995). I won't critique the film, it would take me ages. However, below is the storyline taken from IMDB. Enjoy!

*The last Vimeo user did not want to share his video unfortunately so i've had to upload the video in two parts. Big thanks to the people who like to share :)

Time travel, still images, a past, present and future and the aftermath of World War III. The tale of a man, a slave, sent back and forth, in and out of time, to find a solution to the world's fate. To replenish its decreasing stocks of food, medicine and energies, and in doing so, resulting in a perpetual memory of a lone female, life, death and past events that are recreated on an airports jetée.
