Two films from Chris Marker are coming to Blu-ray in February.
In an early announcement to retailers, the Criterion Collection will release 'La Jetée / Sans Soleil' on Blu-ray on February 7.
One of the most influential, radical science-fiction films ever made and a mind-bending free-form travelogue, La Jetée and Sans Soleil couldn’t seem more different—yet they’re the twin pillars of an unparalleled and uncompromising career in cinema.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p digital transfer, uncompressed monaural soundtracks, and supplements include: Gillo Pontecorvo: The Dictatorship of Truth, a documentary narrated by literary critic Edward Said; Two interviews with filmmaker Jean-Pierre Gorin; Chris on Chris, a video piece on Marker by filmmaker and critic Chris Darke; Two excerpts from the French television series Court-circuit (le magazine); A look at David Bowie's music video for the song "Jump They Say," inspired by La Jetée; An analysis of Hitchcock's Vertigo and its influence on Marker; Junkopia, a six-minute film by Marker about the Emeryville Mudflats; and a booklet featuring an essay by Marker scholar Catherine Lupton, an interview with Marker, notes on the films and filmmaking by Marker, and more.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
