Année dernière à Marienbad Last year at Marienbad /

DVD 1800
Loin du Vietnam Far from Vietnam /
"Initiated and edited by Chris Marker, Far from Vietnam is an epic 1967 collaboration between cinema greats Jean-Luc Godard, Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch and Alain Resnais in protest of American military involvement in Vietnam--made, per Marker's narration, 'to affirm, by the exercise of their craft, their solidarity with the Vietnamese people in struggle against aggression.' A truly collaborative effort, the film brings together an array of stylistically disparate contributions, none individually credited, under a unified editorial vision. The elements span documentary footage shot in North and South Vietnam and at anti-war demonstrations in the United States; a fictional vignette and a monologue that dramatize the self-interrogation of European intellectuals; interviews with Fidel Castro and Anne Morrison, widow of Norman Morrison, the Quaker pacifist who burned himself alive on the steps of the White House in 1965; an historical overview of the conflict; reflections from French journalist Michèle Ray; and a range of repurposed media material."

Nuit et brouillard Night and fog /
"Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek. One of the first cinematic reflections on the horrors of the Holocaust, Night and fog (Nuit et brouillard) contrasts the stillness of the abandoned camps' quiet, empty buildings with haunting wartime footage"-- Container.
DVD 1802

DVD 11958

DVD 2055
Vous n'avez encore rien vu You ain't seen nothin' yet /
Based on two works by the playwright Jean Anouilh, this film opens with a who's-who of French acting royalty being summoned to the reading of a late playwright's last will and testament. This is an alternately wry and wistful valentine to actors and the art of performance from a director long fascinated by the intersection of life, theater and cinema.
