Immemory is the first CD-ROM project by French filmmaker Chris Marker. Marker's recent works have explored computers, multimedia, and non-linearity, traversing the passages between documentary and fiction. In Immemory,
Marker charts a haunting journey through memory, cinema, photography, war and literature, tracing an itinerary or map of an imaginary country. This voyage takes us from the "Madeleine" at the intersection of Proust and Hitchcock through an archive of image and text, and culminates as a self-portrait. Marker states that his object was to "present the 'guided tour' of a memory, while at the same time offering the visitor a chance for haphazard navigation."
This CD-ROM is in French. A 160-page booklet, with essays by Raymond Bellour and Laurent Roth, in French and English, is also available.
