Le Fond de l'air est Rouge / A GRIN WITHOUT A CAT (1977/1993)
by CHRIS MARKER, 180 min.
in English, Spanish and French with some English subtitles.

First released in 1977, this is Chris Marker's "grand immersion" (J. Hoberman), an epic examination of the course of the global Left in the 20th Century. Marker focusses particularly on the period post WW II until the Chilean coup. He added a short coda to the film in 1993 following the collapse of the Soviet Union, but the film was never released in the US until 2002. (It has not been shown in SF since then.)

"A GRIN WITHOUT A CAT is a work of extraordinary journalism, but it is also a work of deft and subtle poetry, visual (in the rhyming of gestures and shapes across images and sequences) as much as verbal."
- Dave Kehr, New York Times
