La Jetee

1962 by Chris Marker
Incredibly interesting and stunning short film which speaks to the heart and mind. Created by photomontage with narration and music. A story of post-nuclear war Paris and unusual experimentation with time travel in hopes to go to the future to gain help for the present. A skill I wish I could master myself so many times.

Watch it. And watch it again..... Own it on Criterion Collection.
