Chris Marker:
Guillaume-en-Égypte
Short Films - Program Five

Marker's intense political awareness and untrammeled activist spirit gave a galvanizing intensity to his work in the 1980s and 1990s which also saw him working and experimenting with a wide variety of video formats. This selection of late shorts reveals Marker's restless engagement with the many wars and upheavals that destabilized Europe throughout the period while showcasing his syncretic vision of history and the inter-connectedness of international events.
