Vive la baleine.
Part of the Chris Marker World Wide Web Site.
Written by Adrian Miles.
This film is apparently Les Hommes de la baleine (1956) re-released as Vive la baleine
under the auspices of S.L.O.N. in 1972. (Some sources also list as 1970.) Chris
Marker did the voice over narration for this film. It is unclear from
the sources whether this means he read the narration or wrote it,
however given his history of writing commentaries the latter seems more
likely. It is also unclear whether he is responsible for this on the
re-released film and the original, though the literature seems to
suggest his and S.L.O.N.'s involvement only in the latter.
Monaco et al list Marker as a director of this film.
