Music:Francine "Fake Fireplace Things" 28 Plastic Blue Versions of Endings Without You
Ahh, so that's what it is
Found this in an article on Chris Marker by Catherine Lupton in Film Comment, of all places:
...These oft-quoted lines seems to offer a poetic corroboration of the familiar founding principle of the study of memory: namely that memory is always a retrospective representation of past events, never the direct manifestation of the past in the present.
Chris Marker made La Jetée, which was the inspiration for Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys. He's a very reclusive, distinctive filmmaker and seems like a neat guy in the e-mail interview included with this issue of the magazine.
