La Jetee

La Jetee, Chris Marker's 1962 short masterpiece, is set in a WWIII-ravaged post-nuclear Paris. The twenty-eight minute film is comprised of still shots edited together into a montage, save for a short scene of motion picture. The film is narrated and subtitled. It deals with experiments in time travel, and complications of memory.
