Ciné-Club presents, Chris Marker’s Level Five (1996)
A French computer programmer, Laura, inherits the task of making a computer game of the Battle of Okinawa during World War II. She searches the internet for information on the battle and interviews Japanese experts and witnesses. The extraordinary circumstances of the Battle of Okinawa lead Laura to reflect deeply on her own life and humanity in general, particularly the influence of history and memories.
