Free and open to the public
A public screening of filmmaker Chris Marker's pivotal “essay film” Sans Soleil (1983, 103 min.), a complex meditation on individual and collective human memory. Refracted through scenes filmed in Iceland, Japan, Paris, San Francisco, and Guinea-Bissau, the film reflects Marker's unique political and poetic approach.
In conjunction with the exhibition Words and Places: Etel Adnan, the CCA Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice and Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts present a series of talks and film screenings that examines issues called up by Adnan’s practice and expands its frame of reference.
