LA JETEE (PG)

Dir: Chris Marker. France 1963. 27mins

METEOR

Dir: Christoph Girardet & Matthias Müller. 2011. 15mins

A filmic metaphor for childhood desire and imagination. Black and white extracts from films by Jean Vigo, Bergman and Truffaut combined with colorful images of rockets speeding through outer space.

VICTORY OVER THE SUN

Dir: Michael Robinson. US 200, 13mins

Taking its title from a 1913 Russian Futurist opera, Robinson’s film surveys the abandoned grounds of three World’s Fairs—those in Seattle (’62), New York (’64), and Montreal (’67). Robinson’s father beautifully filmed the actual fairs back when they portrayed a hopeful and celebratory future. However, visiting the sites four decades later, Robinson learned how corporate and competitive the fairs actually were, and their “striving for the future” took on a darker meaning.
