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.
