In the second session of our two-week suite on War and Peace, here?s the latest from master French film essayist Chris Marker. Shot on the streets of Paris over the course of mounting European resistance to American imperial aims, this hour-long lyric plays out Marker?s very personal fascination with the enigmatic appearance of the cat, in this case appearing on the walls and placards of French anti-war activists. This debut screening is facilitated by a live translation by Colleen Silva. Supporting the premiere is an ensemble of short subjects that also address this global horror-show through artists? eyes, including poignant pieces by Jacob Bricca, James Schneider, and Edouard Salier. Free red wine.
