Chris Marker Characteristics

Chris Marker's film La Jetee was made in 1962. Marker uses a unique characteristic in this film. The combination of still photos and voice-over narration makes this a very interesting film and expresses Marker's unique characteristics. Marker also portrays a certain obsession with memory. He re-visited the past, then lived in the present and tried to create a future from his memories. Marker's work is not too complicated to understand. His work is more interesting, because it present themes that makes it easy to relate to a situation that you have experienced or wondered about.
