La Jetée

September 23, 2008

Ah, La Jetée. Here’s the one sentence you need to know about its maker:

Chris Marker lives in Paris and does not grant interviews. When asked for a picture of himself, he usually offers a photograph of a cat instead. His cat is named Guillaume-en-egypte.

How divine!

Just been watching La Vie d’un Chien on the Adventures in Short Film DVD from Future Shorts (out yesterday, guys!) Had to watch La Jetée again. Chien is an affectionate homage; a piss-take, in a way, but a nice one.

The DVD also features the Bat For Lashes video, What’s a Girl to Do. Love this song.
