Chris Marker (1921–2012) was a French filmmaker and multimedia artist who pioneered the genre of essay film. He worked in Paris as a journalist and published a novel ‘Le Coeur net’ (1949). His first filmed work was Olympia 52 (1952), followed by Statues Also Die (1953), co-directed by Alain Resnais. The latter film received the Prix Jean Vigo, but was initially banned by censors for its criticism of French colonialism.

 

Marker’s best-known work, La Jetée (1962), is a short film composed almost entirely of still photographs. In 1967 Marker formed SLON, a film collective that made politically themed documentaries, including Loin du Vietnam (1967). Marker’s last work, a short trailer on the history of cinema, was commissioned to promote the 50th anniversary of the Viennale Film Festival in 2012.
