Chris Marker, the maestro of cinema who passed away on July 30 at the age of 91, spent his long, extraordinary life illuminating ours. He demonstrated once and for all that time, like Dante's hell, is circular (in "La Jetée"). He was the man who taught us that what is actual is actual only for one time (in "Sans Soleil").
He made elephants dance to Stravinsky's music.
And he was, of course, cinema's foremost lover of cats.
May he nap in peace.
