Chris Marker – Sans Soleil

A movie somewhere between documentary and fiction.
Meditating on memory and travel and leaving behind somewhat of an image of Japan in the early 80’s.

Unfortunately this is not the complete movie. But worth a look nonetheless.

Chris Marker – Sans Soleil

Excerpt from the movie:

I remember that month of January in Tokyo, or rather

I remember the images I filmed of the month of January in Tokyo.

They have substituted themselves for my memory.

They are my memory.

I wonder how people remember things
who don’t film, don’t photograph, don’t tape.

How has mankind managed to remember?
