Chris Marker’s 1960 report from the only 12-year-old nation of Israel. Run time: 50 min.

A sui generis cinema poet who virtually invented the essay film, French multimedia artist Chris Marker used highly personal collages of moving images, photography and text to explore time, memory, and political upheaval with a playful wit and a remarkably agile mind.

Shown with: "... A Valparaíso" (1962), Directed by Joris Ivens. Marker penned the lyrical voiceover text for Ivens’ beautifully photographed paean to the Chilean city of Valparaíso—its people and their traditions, its vertiginous geography, and its tumultuous history.Run time: 28 min.

Both films in French with English subtitles.

Part of BAMcinématek series Chris Marker
