Marker investigates the psychic and historical insights that can be gleaned from landscape and geography in these intellectually adventurous docu-essays. In French with English subtitles. 

 

 
Description of a Struggle (1960)

Run time: 51min
Digital

 

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).

 
... A Valparaíso (1962)

Directed by Joris Ivens
Run time: 28min
35mm

 

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.
