Chris Darke's study places Chris Marker's 'La Jetee' (1962) in its political, cultural and cinematic context, and provides a detailed analysis of its formal and stylistic elements, particularly Marker's use of still photography, references to other films, including Hitchcock's 'Vertigo', and its influence on other time-travel narratives.
Chris Darke is Senior Lecturer in Film at the University of Roehampton, UK.
