Synopsis

A cat dozing off on a keyboard as the notes of Federico Mompou’s Pajaro Triste fluctuate in the air. The subtle movements of his paws and ears seem to follow the music, until he wakes up and finds a more comfortable position to keep napping.

Director

Chris Marker

Chris Marker

Chris Marker (born Christian François Bouche-Villeneuve; Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, 1921 - Paris, France, 2012) made Les statues meurent aussi with Alain Resnais in 1953. He then turned to documentary filmmaking with works as Lettre de Sibéria (1957) and Le joli mai (1963), and directing in an almost fifty-years-long career many other films, including the well-known La jetée (1962), Sans soleil (1983) and Le tombeau d’Alexandre (1993), which made him one of the most important militant experimental filmmakers of French cinema.
