La Jetée is a 1962 French science fiction featurette by Chris Marker. Constructed almost entirely from still photos, it tells the story of a post-nuclear war experiment in time travel. It is 28 minutes long and shot in black and white. The 1995 film 12 Monkeys was inspired by and borrows several concepts directly from La Jetée.
We was told about La Jetée during our Video storyboarding workshop where we made our own short video montage sequence using still images to create a video and after that lesson I looked into La Jetée in further detail and gave it a watch.
Im not gonna pretend that I really enjoyed La Jetée because I did not but I can appreciate what Chris Marker created with the limitations of just still image/photographs and in only black and white.
