One of the most challenging films ever made, Chris Marker's
neo-science fiction film is set in a ruined France after World War
III, in which a man's vivid childhood experience allows him to travel
forward and backward in time. As a grown man, he meets the girl he had
glimpsed as a child at the airport, falls in love with her, chooses to
remain in the past, but is executed by those who hold power in the
future. France, 1962, 29 mins. Also contains An Occurrence at Owl
Creek Bridge, directed by Robert Enrico and based on a short story by
Ambrose Bierce, which tells the tale of a man who is about to be
hanged when the rope suddenly snaps and he is able to escape.
Unfortunately, his newly found freedom is short-lived. USA, 1962, 27
