Chris Marker’s photograph of a Moscow street scene (1957-1960?), as filmed by Jean-Luc Godard for the credits sequence of Alphaville (1965). Marker had no idea that Godard had used it until he saw it on-screen.
Chris Markter later wrote:
The peoples of the world join hands to throw the tanks into the drink (not all of them, as the Czechs and Hungarians would find out later) - there the symbol’s clear enough, but whose hands are releasing the dove of peace? A Woman’s hands, surely, perhaps an angel’s. “Who, if I cried out…" Was Godard thinking of Rilke when he slipped this image into the credits screen of Alphaville?
