A narrated journey through the thoughts, pictures and memories of a young female woman’s travels in Japan, Iceland and San Francisco. Visionary director Chris Marker brings this story to life with an idiosyncratic meditation on time and place, memory and image in our post-modern universe.
With an introduction by Rebecca E Marshall looking at Marker’s exploration of how memory serves to constitute an individual’s sense of self and the collective process of forging an official version of history.
Doors open at 7.15pm
