A lo-fi PC game becomes the impetus for a mnemonic exploration of the past when a computer programmer (Catherine Belkhodja) is tasked with recreating the Battle of Okinawa. In dialogue with her deceased lover, she embarks on a haunting exploration of Okinawa’s history, navigating information networks populated with testimonies, interviews (including one with director Nagisa Oshima), eye-witness accounts and archival footage—prompting a cathartic convergence of thought, image and memory interwoven within Marker’s uniquely digital framework. The final feature by Chris Marker, Level Five examines the forgotten tracts of history that still reverberate throughout Okinawa—a locale that, as Marker puts it, has not forgotten the war.
Dir. Chris Marker, 1996, 106 min., DCP, color, in French with English Subtitles. With Catherine Belkhodja, Nagisa Oshima, Chris Marker.
