The German press pamphlet of Sans Soleil includes a brief description of the film, a list of contributors with credits for music and images, and fantastic biographical introductions to Sandor Krasna, Michel Krasna, Hayao Yamaneko and Chris Marker, whereby all of the names mentioned being alter egos of Marker himself. The biographies were most likely written by Marker himself, in his own he writes:

“Arbeitet zur Zeit an einem Filmprojekt, das auf den Video-Spielen basiert :Mosquito bytes cause malaria, mit Amanda Plummer, die es nocht nicht weiss und zweifelslos begeistert sein wird, es hier zu erfahren.”

[Currently working on a film project based on video games: Mosquito bytes cause malaria, with Amanda Plummer, who doesn’t know yet and will no doubt be thrilled to find out here.]

Scarce press pamphlet for the German theatrical release of Chris Marker landmark, Sans Soleil. OCLC (10/2021) lists no institutional holdings.
