RCA Film Night Series: Sans Soleil (1983)

18 February 2020 | 6pm – 8pm

Kensington, Lecture Theatre 1


Join us for the screening of Sans Soleil (1983) by Chris Marker.

Marker's poetic cine-meditation on time, place and memory - its title taken from a Mussorgsky song cycle - seeks to denude the image of its narrative context, of the deleterious march of time itself and liberate its essential meaning. Like a piece of sci-fi anthropology, it visits humanity as if from another planet, juxtaposing human conventions and customs from Iceland, San Francisco, Japan and Africa. As the narrator puts it: "Not for contrasts, but to find the farthest-flung traces of survival". 

The screening will be presented by Indrani Lukomski.
