Friday, March 15, 2013 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Slought, the Department of Film and Media Arts at Temple University, and the Cinema Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania are pleased to present "Things that Quicken the Heart: A Chris Marker Symposium." This two-day symposium will explore the work of the late French filmmaker Chris Marker, who passed away in July 2012 at the age of 91 and is widely acknowledged as one of the most prolific and inventive media artists in the history of cinema. Working continually since the 1940s, Marker directed some of the most important films in the history of world cinema, including La jetée (1962), A Grin without a Cat (1997), Sans Soleil (1982), and multi-media projects Level 5 (1996) and Immemory (1998, 2008).
