LA JETÉE

Extremely original, this short film takes the shape of a photo story, slow and dreamy. Syncopated, the story complies at the rate of its motionless images, of a beauty quite of twilight. Today become cult LA JETÉE will be presented before 12 MONKEYS: Terry Gilliam pulled his inspiration from the short film to make his movie.

Time travel, still images, past, present and future and the aftermath of World War III. The tale of a man, a slave, sent back and forth, in and out of time, to find a solution to the world's fate, to replenish its decreasing stocks of food, medicine and energies, and in doing so, resulting in a perpetual memory of a lone female, life, death and past events that are recreated on an airport jetty.

12 MONKEYS

Between sanity and madness, fantasy and reality, the past and the future, comes an adventure beyond imagination from Terry Gilliam, the acclaimed director of "The Fisher King." Penal colony prisoner James Cole (Willis) must travel back in time from the year 2035 to find the cause of a virus that killed five billion people in 1997.
