Chris Marker Passed Away—Take a Moment and Rewatch La Jette

Avanat-garde french Film maker Chris Marker passed away last Sunday in Paris at the age of 91. He is best known for La Jette, a twenty-six minute long time-travel movie told almost entirely in stills. La Jette is well known to be the basis of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys andwhile I loved 12 Monkeys, it’s amazing how much more is in this movie only a quarter of the length. Take a moment to watch it again or for the first time. You’ll be glad you did.
