Filmmaker, photographer, writer and traveler Chris Marker has never respected the boundaries between genres. His landmark 1962 film La Jetée is made up almost entirely of stills, its one moving image as thrilling as the Lumières’ films must have been for their original audiences. Since then, Marker’s films (including the features Sans Soleil, and most recently Level Five) have continued to stretch the definition of the art, merging at times with the essay, political manifesto, personal letter, art installation, even the computer game. In Immemory, Chris Marker has used the format of the CD-Rom to create a multi-layered, multimedia memoir. The reader investigates “zones” of travel, war, cinema and poetry, navigating through photographs, film clips, music and text, as if physically exploring Marker’s memory itself. The result is a veritable twenty-first-century Remembrance of Things Past, an exploration of the state of memory in our digital era. With it, Marker has both invented a literary form and perfected it. System Requirements: For Macintosh computers running System 7.5 through Mac OS 9 (including the “Classic environment” of Mac OS X)
