STILL/MOVING: still photography in the moving image
a two-part film series curated by Andy Ditzler
Part 2: Pictures worth a thousand words
Chris Marker, La Jetée
"Pictures worth a thousand words" shows three films which tell their stories almost entirely with still photographs (but watch closely!).
Chris Marker’s classic La Jetée – the inspiration for the Terry Gilliam film 12 Monkeys – is the story of a mysterious childhood memory in a dystopian future. Using still photos, a hot plate, and a poignant narration, Hollis Frampton’s film (nostalgia) works an ingenious cognitive trick on the audience, while Morgan Fisher’s Production Stills turns a Polaroid camera on a movie camera, then turns the movie camera back on the Polaroid photos and thus manages to document its own making!
