Directed by Chris Marker | 1977
"A work of extraordinary journalism, but... also a work of deft and subtle poetry, visual (in the rhyming of gestures and shapes across images and sequences) as much as verbal."
—Dave Kehr, The New York Times

Marker’s epic consideration of the rise and fall of leftist revolutions across the globe—which he calls “scenes from the Third World War”—brings together everyone and everything from Che Guevara and Mao Tse-tung to the Black Panthers and Battleship Potemkin into one visually intoxicating cinematic collage. Laced with lyrical touches, A Grin Without a Cat represents the Marxist Marker’s highly personal explication of the meaning, legacy, and failures of the New Left.
