Marker’s affection for animals extends beyond his well-documented love for cats, as shown in these alternately whimsical and reflective essays on creatures great and small. In French with English subtitles.

This collection of five short-shorts features a trip to an owl aviary, an elephant dancing to Stravinsky’s “Tango,” and, of course, Marker’s beloved feline alter-ego, Guillaume-en-Egypte.

 
Les hommes de la baleine (1956)

Marker wrote the commentary for this thrilling documentary on whale hunting in the Azores, about which Éric Rohmer said, ”makes us admire man, nature, and, upon leaving, cinema, which sings the greatest of both so well.”

Marker and Italian co-director Mario Ruspoli explore man’s relationship to the much-mythologized mammal—including their slaughter—in this essay film, which carries an impassioned ecological message.
