Creative Industry Practice: La Jetee by Chris Marker

We were told about a video called La Jetee during video editing workshop. We made our own short video montage using still images to create a video. I looked up La Jetee in detail and what I learned was is La Jetee is a 1962 French science fiction featurette by Chris Marker. Constructed almost entirely from still photos, it tells the story of a post-nuclear war experiment in time travel. It is 28 minutes long and shot in black and white. The 1995  film 12 Monkeys was inspired by and borrows several concepts directly from La Jetée.
