Part of the Chris Marker World Wide Web Site.
Written by Adrian Miles.
This bibliography has been divided
into sections. This is principally for ease of use (so the reader can
get to where they think they want to go faster, and so you don't have to
wait so long for a page to arrive) but also simply to help structure the
material. These references have been sourced from many
different locations and in my experience some have been incorrect.
Where a text is in a language other than English this is noted in square
brackets following the entry. Finally, interviews with Marker,
and various articles written by Marker (principally appearing in Esprit)
are found on the page devoted to Marker's written work.
This contains the general reference
sources I have used to compile the filmography, as well as general film
reference books that have been useful in compiling information about
Marker. I have recently added several general theoretical texts here
that discuss Marker in more than a cursory manner.
This contains essays and journal articles
that are principally reviews of Marker's films. Some may offer
significant theoretical commentary, but they are, principally, about a
specific film or films. In general the essays here are unattributed
(which is one of the reasons I decided to put them on their very own
page). This has essays that
deal with Marker and/or his work in what might be described as a
critically informed manner. It is obvious that the division between the
contents of this bibliography and the previous one are at times
arbitrary but in general the essays found here are distinguished by
their attempt to deal with Marker's oeuvre, with documentary, or film an
aspect of film theory, rather than an effort to offer a reading of a
particular film. If there are further texts that I have not
listed here please contact me so that they can be incorporated (simply
point and click on my name below). Full credit will be given to those
who provide me with additional information. This is a listing of the written work
of Marker. It includes film reviews, essays, poetry, script collections,
and other odds and ends.
