Marker’s report from the then only 12-year-old nation of Israel views the country as a collection of signs, “invoking the need for an x-ray vision that can penetrate and decipher the physical and historical landscape” (Catherine Lupton).

Marker penned the lyrical voiceover text for Ivens’ beautifully photographed paean to the Chilean city of Valparaíso—its people and their traditions, its vertiginous geography, and its tumultuous history.
