Synopsis

A unique film that has practically no moving images - instead, it is made up of a series of still photographs and lasts just under 30 minutes. But in that short running time, it does enough to stay with you long after the closing credits - a tense, mysterious story set after a nuclear war, when scientists are trying to send people back through time to try to understand how the catastrophe happened. The man they choose for the job is obsessed with a single moment from his childhood - but what does it mean? And does it have a lesson for the future? Once you acclimatise to the strangeness of watching a "movie" that is actually made up of still photos, La Jetée is a haunting and magnificent film. Sans Soleil (15) Running Time: 100 mins Year Produced: 1983 Like Chris Marker's more famous film La Jetee, Sans Soleil rejects cinema's traditional story telling methods in favour of recording more personal impressions and memories. Scenes from Japan, Guinea-Bissau and Iceland are set to a female narrator reading letters sent to her by the fictitious cameraman. It's an experience unlike any other documentary travelogue you've seen before. Age: 14-18 PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering La Jetee the disc you will receive will be marked as being a 15 certificate - however, this relates to the other film on the disc, San Soleil. La Jetee is certified with the BBFC as PG.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
