An homage in two parts to the late French filmmaker Chris Marker (1921–2012) recalls his oeuvre through recurring motifs—the mysterious workings of memory and of politics, and his avowed fascination for cats. Marker refined the genre now known as the essay film—a reflective montage of images, ideas, and narrative that goes beyond traditional form to unfold a poetic theme. "We do not remember, we rewrite memory, much as history is rewritten."
