LA JETEE at Cinematheque

Location: The Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA

Description: The famous science fiction short subject – remade as 12 MONKEYS – screens as part of a tribute to French filmmaker Chris Marker. The mind-bending time-travel dream (composed almost entire of still images that dissolve into each other to create the illusion of movement) precedes Marker’s features REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS TO COME, a cine-essay portrait of photographer Denise Bellon, and CASE OF THE GRINNING CAT, Marker’s last full-length film, a reflection on French and international politics, art and culture at the start of the new millennium. “Bestiary,” a collection of short films devoted to animals, will also screen, along with the short “Junkopia,” focusing on the Emeryville Mudflats in Northern California.
