La jetée ; Sans soleil( Visual )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sans soleil: This film addresses the themes of time, space, and geography. It is "a collage of images gathered from Japan, Africa, Iceland, San Francisco, and France -- all presented without direct sound. The soundtrack consists of occasional spells of electronic music while an unseen woman's voice ... narrates letters written by a possibly fictional traveler in poetic verse. Beginning with the phrase "He wrote me," each segment explores some philosophical inquiry of matters as broad as modern culture, technology, consciousness, Japanese television, and even the act of filming itself"--Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
