50th Anniversary Double Feature!
France | 1962 | Chris Marker & Jean-Luc Godard
Two French masterpieces made 50 years ago. La Jetée (The Jetty or The Pier) is a unique, haunting, post-apocalyptic fantasy about memory, time travel, and destiny. It was the only fiction film by the great ciné-essayist Chris Marker (who died in July at age 91) and inspired Terry Gilliam’s Twelve Monkeys. Pauline Kael called it “the greatest science-fiction movie I’ve ever seen.” My Life to Live, Jean-Luc Godard’s fourth feature (and one of his very best), is a 12-part portrait of an aspiring young actress (Anna Karina, then Mrs. Godard) who turns Parisian prostitute. "One of the most extraordinary, beautiful, and original works of art that I know of.” -Susan Sontag.Both subtitled and 35mm.
