KD Davis, MVFF Senior Programmer:
TO CHRIS MARKER: AN UNSENT LETTER
I’m totally excited that MVFF is hosting the World Premiere of beloved local cinematographer/filmmaker Emiko Omori’s newest film: TO CHRIS MARKER: AN UNSENT LETTER.
For any true cinephile (and I count all the MVFF audiences as “official cinephiles”), this beautiful and poetic film pays homage to one of the most elusive and brilliant film-essayists of the French New Wave/Left Bank school, Chris Marker. Marker’s unforgettable short film LA JETTEE and his subsequent feature films were greatly inspirational for young filmmakers of the 60s and 70s including George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and Terry Giliiam. What a pleasure to rediscover this iconic director whose work changed the face of filmmaking as we know it today.
