Please screen both La Jeteé by Chris Marker and Kids & Money by Lauren Greenfield.
Kids & Money is a film that serves as a foundation of a larger project Generation Wealth
La Jeteé was a seminal part of The French New Wave in the 1950s and early 1960s and brought Chris
Marker international recognition.
Following the screening of each of these short films please write the following:
1. A one-page critical reaction/response for each film. What about the films works for you, what
does not? Be honest and open with your criticism, don’t feel that you have to couch or censor
2. Following that, on no more than two pages, please compare and contrast the films (I’m aware that
they are very different, one is a work of fiction and the other a documentary).
As a starting point, consider the role of the photographer/maker/camera in each film (there are
still photographs from Kids & Money as well). How is the eye of the maker and role of the camera
similar and how does it differ between the two? After that find similarities and differences in
storytelling, narrative structures, etc.
