Chris Marker’s Weird, Wonderful ‘Level Five’ Coming to Home Video

Chris Marker's Weird, Wonderful 'Level Five' Coming to Home Video

In Chris Marker’s final feature film, a French computer scientist is developing a video game about the Battle of Okinawa while being haunted by the loss of her lover. Who else but Marker would make a film like "Level Five"?

This mind-meltingly beautiful genre-crosser from 1997–15 years before Marker, best known for documentary "Sans Soleil" and sci-fi "La Jetee," died in 2012–is now headed to DVD and VOD from Icarus Films.

More a visually hyperbolic cinematic essay than a narrative film — as is the case for almost any Marker film —  "Level Five" arrives October 7.

Watch the whacky, wonderful trailer below. More info from Icarus here.
