Chris Marker’s “Chat Ecoutant la Musique”

In Chat Ecoutant la Musique, the late Chris Marker captures his beloved feline, Guillaume-en-Egypte, lazing about while listening to a sonata by Federico Mompou. Known primarily for his feature length documentaries and film-essays (La Jetee, A Grin Without a Cat, Sans Soleil, etc.), this glimpse into Marker’s home is the first in a series of shorts dedicated to animals.
