Sans Soleil

Directed by Chris Marker

Re-released to mark its 20th anniversary, film essayist Marker’s visionary film still dazzles. A poetic documentary tour of Tokyo, Guinea-Bissau, Iceland and San Francisco, SANS SOLEIL mixes film with video, voiceover of fictional letters with snapshots of actual places, all into an exciting, infectious swirl. With this indefinable film, Marker explores the relationship between developed and developing societies and the disjunction of travelling through time and cultures, with a special focus on Tokyo.
