Rare, we can only find one other institutional copy held in the Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley. Press brochure for Marker’s ambitious essay-film travelogue. Film synopsis, reviews and credits are interspersed in classic Marker style with a score from Mussorgsky’s song cycle Sunless, an illustrated emu and a collage of Japanese cartoons. Also of note are the list of biographies including Sandor Krasna, the fictitious cameraman and Michel Krasna, another alias of Marker.
