|Sans Soleil/La Jetée (1983)Two masterpieces on a single DVD. Sans Soleil's early 1980s Japanese sections are astonishingly prescient, showing how the collision of ancient and ritual practice with technological innovation would come to define our postmodern world.|
|A Grin Without A Cat (1977)An epic history of progressive politics between 1967 and 1977. Analyzing party factionalism and revolutionary mythology (spotlighting neglected icons like Regis DeBray and Douglas Bravo), its tone is mournful without indulging sentimentality.|
|Immemory (1998)Marker's personal archive, a CD-ROM version of a 1997 Pompidou Centre exhibition. Containing hours of stills, texts, film clips, and digital art and music, it brilliantly fulfills the nonlinear potential of Marker's films.|
|Staring Back (2007)A collection of photographs spanning 1952 through 2006. Where La Jetée was a film made from still photos, the stills in "Staring Back" consist of frame enlargements isolated from Marker's films and videos.|
|Remembrance Of Things To Come (2001)Sifting through the 1930s work of photojournalist Denise Bellon, Marker discovers "the moment when postwar became pre-war": an issue of Paris Match which included Bellon's pictures of a Gypsy wedding alongside excerpts from Mein Kampf.|
|The Last Bolshevik (1992)A dazzling examination of Alexander Medvedkin, the Russian filmmaker who set out across Russia to capture farmers and factory workers in their attempts to build a new country, and then instigated auto-critique by showing them the footage on-site.|
