“This is the story of a man, marked by an image from his
childhood.” Thus begins, with deceptive simplicity, Chris
Marker’s La Jetée (1962). The film, by far Marker’s bestknown
work, synthesizes many of the elusive filmmaker’s
central preoccupations – time and memory, power and resistance,
the ephemerality and resilience of love – yet it also
undermines the very idea of film. Composed almost entirely
of still photographs, La Jetée quite literally pieces together
the tale of an unnamed, forsaken protagonist, drafted into a
series of time travel experiments in post-apocalyptic Paris.
While Marker creates some of the most hauntingly beautiful
imagery in cinema, what animates La Jetée’s frozen
pictures is its sparse and unsettling soundscape. Whispers,
breaths and heartbeats offer an unnerving reminder of
bodily rhythms that, inside the film and out, will inevitably
cease. Fragments of symphonic music at once capture a
love affair and underscore the tragedy awaiting it. The poetic
momentum of the narrator’s voice, our only guide: “On
the tenth day, images begin to ooze, like confessions.”
Superior Viaduct is honored to present the first-time release
of the soundtrack from La Jetée. This vinyl album
features both French and English voiceover narrations,
along with organic textures and Trevor Duncan’s impressionistic
score. More than half a century has passed since
La Jetée’s theatrical release – now is the time to travel back
to the “sudden roar” of this masterpiece in a completely
different light.
