Yannick Bellon in Remembrance of Things to Come

Remembrance of Things to Come

2001 NR

Filmmaker Chris Marker lends his unique talent for montage to this portrait of French photographer Denise Bellon. Marker uses Bellon's work to reveal Paris, Europe, the world, art and cinema as they were from 1935-55. As unconventional as its director and its subject, the film uses a nonlinear approach to mimic human memory as it examines Bellon's life, family and travel throughout the world. Bellon's daughter Yannick co-directed this documentary.
