9781861892232: Chris Marker: Memories of the Future

Chris Marker is one of the most extraordinary and influential filmmakers of our time. In landmark films such as Letter from Siberia, La Jetée, Sans Soleil, and Level Five, he has overturned cinematic conventions by confounding the distinction between documentary and fiction, writing and visual recording, and the still and moving image. Yet these works are only the tip of the iceberg; Marker's career has also encompassed writing, photography, television, and digital multimedia.

Chris Marker is the first systematic examination of Marker's complete oeuvre. Here, Catherine Lupton traces the development and transformation of the artist's work from the late 1940s, when he began to work as a poet, novelist, and critic for the French journal Esprit, through the 1990s and the release of his most recent works, including Level Five and the CD-ROM Immemory. Lupton explicates Marker's work as a circular trajectory, with each project recycling and referring back to earlier works as well as to a host of adopted texts, always proceeding by oblique association and lateral digression. This trajectory, which Lupton outlines with great care and precision, is critical to understanding Marker's abiding obsession: the forms and operations of human memory. With this theme as her architecture, Lupton presents the most comprehensive and incisive analysis of Marker to date.

Incorporating historical events and cultural contexts that have informed each phase of Marker's career, Lupton gives readers access to an artist who stands outside of the mainstream and thus defies easy explanation. There is no better guide than Lupton's to this modern master's prolific and multidimensional career.

About the Author :

Catherine Lupton is a senior lecturer in film studies at Roehampton University, London.

Review :

"A gentle, firm, lucid tracking down of the greatest ever movie essayist . . . There could not be a better introduction." (David Thomson The Week 2005-04-05)

"Lupton's book is. . . a thoroughly necessary guide"

(Modern Painters 2005-05-01)

"Her prose is refreshingly jargon-free . . .Lupton draws thematic connections between isolated moments in Marker's films with an ease born of familiarity, and her film analyses are lucid and interesting . . . the first complete English-language survey of Marker's work is an invaluable reference."

(James Ervin Rain Taxi 2005-06-01)

"This is the first study of him in English to reveal the full scope of a luminous career . . . Lupton steers through the maze of Marker's world with admirable clear-headedness and isn't afraid to point out when he might fall short of greatness. . . . satisfyingly complex."

(Frieze 2005-05-01)

"A highly recommended Chris Marker primer and a much-welcome addition to the growing debate and interest around his work outside of France."

(Mikael Astronomeow Film Comment 2005-12-01)

"Helpfully supplies some background about his path to cinema. . . . Its greatest value lies in the sheer amount of information about Marker. . . . Lupton does justice to the artist behind the persona." (Steve Erickson Cineaste 2005-12-01)

"Provides comprehensive insights into the enigmatic auteur and his unpredictable career." (Leslie Woodhead The Times Higher Education Supplement 2006-01-13)

"A succinct, comprehensive account of [Marker's] work." (Emilie Bickerton London Review of Books 2006-04-20)

Description du livre Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Chris Marker is one of the most extraordinary and influential film-makers of our time. In landmark films such as Letter from Siberia (1958), La Jetee (1962), Sans Soleil (1982) and Level Five (1996), he overturned the conventions of the cinema, confounding normal distinctions between documentary and fiction, private and public concerns, writing and visual recording, and the still and moving image. Yet these works are only the better-known elements of a protean career that to date has spanned the second half of the twentieth century and encompassed writing, photography, film-making, video, television and the expanding field of digital multimedia. Catherine Lupton traces the development and transformation of Marker s work from the late 1940s, when he began to work as a poet, novelist and critic for the French journal Esprit , through to the 1990s, and the release of his most recent works: the feature film Level Five and the CD ROM Immemory . She incorporates the historical events, shifts and cultural contexts that most productively illuminate the different phases of Marker s career. He stands out as a singular figure whose work resists easy assimilation into the mainstream of cultural and cinematic trends. Marker s oeuvre moves in circles, with each project recycling and referring back to earlier works and to a host of other adopted texts, and proceeds by way of oblique association and lateral digression. This circular movement is ideally suited to capturing and mapping Marker s abiding and consummate obsession: the forms and operations of human memory. Chris Marker: Memories of the Future itself aims to capture something of this movement, in forming a comprehensive analysis and overview of this modern master s prolific and multi-faceted career.
