La Jetée, the legendary 1964 science fiction film about time and memory after a nuclear apocalypse, is considered by many critics to be among the greatest experimental films ever made. Chris Marker, the undisputed master of the film essay, composed this post-apocalyptic story almost entirely of black-and-white still photographs. The story concerns an experiment in recovering and changing the past through the action of memory. This Zone Books edition reproduces the film's original images along with the script in both English and French.
