Welcome! This site currently (June 1995) contains approximately 22,000 words consisting of around 185 pages with 1600 internal links. The majority of these pages are film credits and bibliographies, and in many cases this information is incomplete. If you find any errors, or have any additional references, or suggestions for finding material, please let me know - my 'clickable' email address is at the bottom of every page.
New information and images are added on a regular basis. If you would like to be notified of major revisions
to these pages please send me email and I will post you an announcement of these changes as they occur. (This is the third major incarnation of the Chris Marker WWW.)
I have introduced a
page for regular visitors. This also helps me to add information on a more regular basis without going through a major rewrite and publication of the site.
The bottom of each page has a general directory to the major pages for this site (and of course you can use the standard navigate options available in your WWW browser).
In addition there are some
from Marker's films available for viewing and downloading.
Please note that these pages are a part of my PhD thesis at
(Melbourne, Australia), and my teaching position at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Both institutions regard WWW publication as a mode of scholarly publication. Free use of this site is encouraged but
standard citation practices
are expected where applicable.
Finally, some of the portrait stills I have 'borrowed' from Microsoft's Cinemania. I regard this as a normal part of scholarly work, where in today's environment
it extends to not only the judicious (and credited) use of text but must be able to encompass images and sound. It is hoped that these portraits will be replaced with images from particular films or other sources, if for no other reason than the Cinemania portraits are, well, stuffy.
Bits and Pieces
Contact and comments
My email address is at the bottom of every page if you want to contact me. As this site has grown rapidly, there are no doubt various errors - factual, typographical, and electronic (wrong URL's and all that). Please contact me with any of these problems so that I can fix 'em.
Help has been received from:
Adrian Danks (provided his preliminary Marker bibliography),
(for providing me with his extensive references to Marker's early written work), and William Horrigan, Audio-Visual Curator at the Wexner Center in Ohio.
The following are general cinema and media studies sites that are excellent directories to other information.
