One of the most influential, radical science-fiction films ever made and a mind-bending free-form travelogue, La jetée (The Pier) and Sans soleil (Sunless) couldn’t seem more different-yet they’re the twin pillars of one of the most daring and uncompromising careers in cinema history.

Chris Marker, filmmaker, poet, novelist, photographer, editor, and now videographer and digital multimedia artist, has been challenging moviegoers, philosophers, and himself for years with his complex queries about time, memory, and the rapid advancement of life on this planet. These two films-a tale of time travel told in still images and a journey to Africa and Japan-remain his best-loved and most widely seen.
