We cordially invite you to the screening of Sans Soleil/ Sunless (100′) by French filmmaker, Chris Marker.
Time: 6 pm Saturday June 19th 2010
Location: Screening room, Goethe institute, 56/58 Nguyen Thai Hoc St, Ba Dinh, Hanoi.
Sans Soleil (by Chris Marker, 100’, 1983) is fictional documentary that questions our ideas of appearance, memory and history. In Marker’s film, the images are real, the soundtrack is created. Each tells its own truth. Stretching the genre of documentary, this experimental essay-film is a rich composition of thoughts, images and scenes, mainly from Japan and Guinea-Bissau, “two extreme poles of survival”.
Chris Marker was one of the seminal figures of the French New Wave. He’s primarily a documentarian, but the basis of his aesthetic is the power of montage, and to serve it he’s made films that are nothing more than compilations of stills, including a science-fiction movie about the destruction of Paris (La Jetée, 1963).
The film is in English with Vietnamese subtitles.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
