While shooting footage for the Vertigo-inspired sections of his 1983 landmark work Sans Soleil, Chris Marker teamed with John Chapman and Frank Simeone to create a short nonfiction piece called Junkopia (1981). Their film is a document of detritus, focusing on an area outside of San Fransisco known as the Emeryville Mudflats where age-old objects and long-lost pieces of art and other projects can be found. The various sights sit in abandonment as the natural world continues on around them, progressing with the flow of time while these pieces of history — each surely possessing their own individual histories — remain rooted in a state of solitude and stasis.
