Alain Resnais and Chris Marker, Les statues meurent aussi (Statues Also Die), 1950-53, 30min.

Artist and filmmaker Duncan Campbell has taken Chris Marker and Alain Resnais’ 1953 film ‘Les Statues meurent aussi’ (Statues also Die) as both source and artefact, to pursue a meditation on the life, death and value of objects. Campbell presents the older film alongside his new work, a social and historical examination of cultural imperialism and commodity that combines filmed footage, animation and archive footage.

This film screening is offered in conjunction with the 2013 Wasserman Forum which focuses on the life and work of renowned artist and filmmaker Chris Marker (1921-2012).
