July 12 – La Jetée, 1962
La Jetée – a film made of photographs . . . but also made up of whispers, of heartbeats, of the roars of airplane – feels primitive to the eye and the ear even though it tells of the future. It is a time-travel story yet no movie is so frozen in time. It feels like a film in mourning for film, in memorial to itself.
