An Arbuckle Christmas (2008)

(Garfield minus Garfield Christmas Special) Jon Arbuckle, an awkward young man dealing with the aftermath of his childhood schizophrenia, revisits the rural town he grew up in for the Holidays. While home, he learns the true meaning of Christmas when he spends some much needed time with his grandmother who is dealing with the early effects of Alzheimer’s.

Tokyo Days (Chris Marker, 1988)

1988, 20:15 min, color, sound

This idiosyncratic view of Tokyo begins with a live mannequin in a store window and French actress Arielle Dombasle chatting with Marker as they wander around Tokyo. After Dombasle departs, the tape continues with footage from the Tokyo subway and an indoor market. Marker punctuates the tape throughout with playful visual and sound edits.

In Japanese and French.
