Cat Listening to Music
Directed by Chris Marker • Documentary • 1994 • 3 minutes
Marker fans are familiar with the cartoon representation of Guillaume-en-Egypte, Marker's beloved pet cat, which has become the reclusive filmmaker's alter ego. In this charming short, Marker reveals the real-life Guillaume, stretched out lazily in the filmmaker's apartment, as he listens to the lilting rhythms of a piano sonata by Federico Mompou. Part of Chris Marker's Bestiary.
