Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Apnée” and “La Jetée”

Two about time…

A split second of time told in stillness. (4 minutes)

La Jetée
Not new to anyone here, I’m sure, but worth a hundred viewings. A time travel movie told almost entirely in stills. Well known to be the basis of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys…while I loved 12 Monkeys, it’s amazing how much more is in this movie only a quarter of the length. (26 minutes.)


Claude Chabot


La Jetée
Chris Marker

As always, more animation in the Saturday Morning Cartoon Index.
