Sans Soleil, Chris Marker’s free-form travelogue is “made up of asides and digressions that form a portrait of late twentieth-century civilization, Marker takes us from rural Iceland in 1965 to Japan in the early 1980s, with fleeting references to Africa, Île-de-France, and the Bijagos Islands. ‘I’ve been round the world several times and now only banality still interests me,’ a narrator remarks … The compulsive globe-trotting implicitly becomes part of what he’s reflecting upon.” (Jonathan Rosenbaum)
