Chris Marker, film-maker who inspired modern sf, dies

Chris Marker, the French film-maker whose short film La Jetée (The Jetty) inspired several leading science fiction authors and film-makers, has died at the age of 91.

His 1962 dystopian short inspired authors such as William Gibson and J.G. Ballard. Terry Gilliam‘s 1995 film 12 Monkeys was also directly inspired by La Jetée.
