A Chris Marker double bill. 'La Jetee' is a science fiction short that takes a man from the future back to his childhood in pre-apocalypse Paris.
His ability to make contact with a woman he once glimpsed may be humanity's last hope.
The film makes use of still pictures to tell almost the entire story.
It won first prize at the 1963 Trieste Film Festival and was the inspiration behind Terry Gilliam's 'Twelve Monkeys'.
Whilst 'Sans Soleil' is Marker's landmark avant-garde documentary which compiles exotic footage from across the globe to provide a collage of 'the dreams of the human race'.
A fictionalised cameraman provides commentary on the images through the letters he writes to a woman.
