Sans Soleil

1983 / 103min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: CHRIS MARKER

CAST: FLORENCE DELAY, ARIELLE DOMBASLE, RIYOKO IKEDA, CHARLOTTE KERR

Marker’s voyage through memory, history, and video games is a free-flow of images shot largely in Japan (a cat temple, sacred phalluses, horror movies, sleeping subway riders, an animatronic JFK), with detours to Guinea-Bissau, Iceland, and, for an extended homage to Vertigo, San Francisco. An alien travelogue? The world’s most profound home movie? There’s nothing quite like it in the history of cinema.

Sans Soleil is screening as part of the series: Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z
