Legendary experimental filmmaker Chris Marker (La Jetée) directed this mindbending, 1997 sci-fi film about a French woman hired to program a video game based on the World War II Battle of Okinawa. Operating on instructions from a mysterious interlocutor, our protagonist is obliged to create less of a strategy game and more of en exact reproduction of history as it happened. In English, French and Japanese with English subtitles. Basement Films president Bryan Konefsky will be on hand to introduce the film.
