L'ambassade

Chris Marker France, 1973

PolarisDiB's rating of the film The Embassy

Utterly depressing 'found footage' narrative of a circle of resistance fighters watching as a fascist coup takes over their country. A lot more subtle Marker spins on the narrative as to temporal and political concerns (basically, Soylent Green is people level reveal), but breathtakingly honest about its intentions. --PolarisDiB
