Sans Soleil is a 1983 French documentary directed by Chris Marker. It is a meditation on the nature of human memory, showing the inability to recall the context and nuances of memory, and how, as a result, the perception of personal and global histories is affected. Expanding the documentary genre, this experimental essay-film is a composition of thoughts, images and scenes, mainly from Japan and Guinea-Bissau, “two extreme poles of survival.” A female narrator reads from letters supposedly sent to her by the (fictitious) cameraman Sandor Krasna.
