The 1962 science fiction film La Jetée by Chris Marker.

Photos from Stavey Pullen’s AIDS benefit, as well as Cliff Bell’s will be up later, come back soon.


La Jetée is set in a post-nuclear war paris and focuses on a group of survivors living underground as they experiment with time travel. It was produced with minimal budget, has no dialogue, and was constructed almost entirely from black and white still photographs. It is simply one of the most stunning and important visual statements made in the last hundred years.

If you have not seen the film, you must. You can watch it below in three parts (it’s only 28 minutes long).





In 1996 mit press produced a book of images from La Jetée. That book is now out of print, but this year zone books reissued La Jetée in all its glory. The book includes all of the film’s original images along with the script in both english and french. You can buy a copy at mitpress.mit.edu.
