” La jetée ” de Chris Marker

Sci-fi and fantasy films, thrillers and dramas are as much cinematographic genres as they are different ways of appropriating manifestations of time. Specific to the twentieth century, cinematic time is one of speed and suspense: it presents the viewer’s imagination with a temporal experience of urgency that is paradoxically suspended in the final seconds before the film’s dénouement. However, cinematic time is also that of daily life: routine, recurrent, cyclical time that may produce boredom, listlessness, or yet be disrupted by the force of chance events. Yet doesn’t cinema’s power lie in its ability to create a labyrinthine and reversible temporality? Time becomes fractured, multi-directional, fragmented, interminable…

Films by Silvano Agosti, Chantal Akerman, René Clair, Koreeda Hirokazu, Alfred Hitchcock, Chris Marker, Georges Perec and Bernard Queysanne, Alain Resnais, and Andrei Tarkovsky.
