Martin Kessler is joined by Jon Laubinger and Jason Beamish to discuss Chris Marker’s Sans Soleil. A film that seems to defy classification, they consider whether it’s a documentary, travelogue, essay, poem, or survival guid for the 21st century. They examine its varied images, and look for meaning in its unexpected juxtapositions and distortions of reality, and consider it it’s worthy of its 69th place on the Sight & Sound List (or maybe a Nobel prize).
