A rare screening of Chris Marker's 1963 Paris portrait, Le joli mai
E is for essay, the quicksilver genre straddling verb and noun. The fact that La Jetée is still Marker's best known film means he's not well known (in the States, anyway), but how many consciousnesses has he burned?
R is for revision since "You never know what you may be filming."
