Kehinde Wiley Film Series: Sans Soleil says
“If the images of the present don’t change, then change the images of the past.”

Sans Soleil is an experimental essay-film directed by Chris Marker that explores human memory, perception, and the manipulation of the image. Through a series of visual montages, Marker shows the inability of the human mind to recall particular contexts and nuances of memory that ultimately affect perception and the understanding of the world. Narrated by the inner dialogue of a woman traveler, we are taken on a mind-bending and meditative journey through time and space with footage from Africa to Japan. Based almost entirely off philosophical discourse and Marker’s own world view, Sans Soleil challenges us to let our memories create their own legends.

Runtime: 1hr 40 mins. Documentary, Drama.
