When Sight and Sound asked for a photo of Chris Marker for Richard Roud’s profile of “The Left Bank” filmmakers in the Winter 1962-63 issue, he sent them this.
The caption reads: “ABOVE: Portrait of the director as a young cat. Marker replies to all requests for photographs of himself by sending pictures of cats; this one was taken by Resnais.
Somewhere in the wilderness of Northern Finland a male bear and female wolf strikes up an unlikely friendship, each evening after a hard-day’s hunting this pair could be seen sharing dinner together while enjoying the sunset. Between the hours of 8pm and 4am they would stay in each other’s company.(photo: Lassi Rautiainen)
looking forward to days spent like this!
