Sans Soleil, 1983

Director, Chris Marker, 1983, France, 104 min

Sans Soleil is a mind-bending free-form travelogue that charts late filmmaker Chris Marker's journey from Africa to Japan. A pioneer of the essay-film, Marker blends documentary and science fiction in this complex meditation on time, memory, and the rapid advancement of life on this planet. This is narrated in a monologue that recites a letter from the unnamed cameraman as he reports back from his journey.

Another Version of Events is the official Liverpool Biennial 2016 film programme. A selection of films influenced by genres including sci-fi, mockumentary, pseudo-documentary, mockbuster and ethnofiction is being screened every week throughout the Biennial.
