À bientôt, j
1967, one year before may '68. The strike at the Rhodiaceta textile plant in Besançon sounds like the rehearsal of the rising to come. Indeed for the first time ever, the workers' claims are not only higher wages or better working conditions but also BETTER LIVING CONDITIONS. They first and foremost say no to the lifestyle capitalism wants to impose on them. (imdb)

Leila Attacks (2007)
LEILA ATTACKS is at once a parody of the faux gigantism of blockbuster PR and a morality tale (it's tempting to say allegory) of a surprising turnabout in power relations. It is not without self-parody either, as one of the Soviet-meets-grunge style opening titles declares Chris Marker "the best-known author of unknown movies." (chrismarker.org)

La solitude du chanteur de fond (1974)
In 1974, Marker made La solitude du chanteur de fond, which follows Yves Montand as he prepares a benefit concert for Chilean refugees. That Montand had not performed live in many years made his participation in this concert all the more significant. The portrait of Montand is intercut with footage from films in which he starred, including Costa Gavras's Z (1969) and L'Aveu (1970), both filmed in Chile with the support of Allende. (rarefilmm.com)

The fourth of French filmmaker Chris Marker's cinematic "personal essays". Using a letter from Siberia as its launching pad, the film goes off quixotically in several different directions. Thus, it's hard to categorize the film: a first documentary, it becomes a travelogue, then an animated cartoon, then a philosophical tract, and then? (All Movie Guide)
