Ody Roos’ Homage to Chris Marker
August 20th, 2012 · Film, Homage, Obituaries

On the way back to NYC from the Pyrenees we stopped over in Paris for two days & spent a fair amount of time with my old friend, the Luxembourgian film maker Ody Roos. Talk of course went immediately to the sad news of his friend Chris Marker’s death — then Ody pulled a thumbdrive from his pocket & handed it to me. It contained an homage video he had put together on/at the funeral. He couldn’t put the whole thing up on Youtube as he had projected, because of objections by some of the included persons, but allowed Nicole & me to extract the scenes in which he talks about Marker’s art. We subtitled them & here it is:

  1. I couldn’t hear anything – is there something wrong with the sound? but I liked the video and wanted to hear his voice…or is it my machine? hmm, would love to see more…Ellen

  2. Sorry to hear you are having trouble, but I think it is on your end. I just tried again and it works. Hope you get to listen to it! Thanks for visiting Collectage Ellen & hope to see you soon. Nicole

  3. sorry about that – it’s a Vimeo/Firefox problem…so have to use another browser to hear…
