La Jetée

Back to listing

World War Three has brought the world to its knees and humanity is in peril. In Paris, the former City of Light, survivors live underground in the Palais de Chaillot galleries. One of them is sent out to seek help; a search that sees him travel through the past and the future. With the exception of one short, live-action scene, the film consists of a series of still images that tell a deeply affecting story.
