Week 3: Sans Soleil

In 1983, the movie Sans Soleil was released by Argos Films.  The movie is edited, directed, and written by Chris Marker of France.    The movie is a documentary based on the women’s thoughts of travelling around the world.  The movie tends to show varies images to help explain the story of the film.  Chris Marker used Images, audio, and voices within his film to further the documentary.  The movie for me is slow but it pulls you in a bit with the random imaging…Like the intro to the movie, it shows varies random images.  One image is a set of fighter jets and the Image (video) of the three children walking around, which Marker believed was the Image of happiness.  The whole shot of the ferry is also good in the intro, showing tired people travel back to Japan.
