"Le Joli Mai" (1963)
A film by Chris Marker & Pierre Lhomme / An Icarus Films Release

“A far-reaching meditation on the relationship between individual and society” (Film Comment), LE JOLI MAI probes the mood in the streets of Paris in May of 1962. “The first springtime of peace” that followed the March ceasefire between France and Algeria after seven years of war.

Working from 55 hours of material filmed with ordinary citizens—made possible by then-new, lightweight, synch-sound cameras—Marker and Lhomme craft a “sincere, brilliant, clever and highly idiosyncratic essay.” (Paris-Presse).

Brown Sugar

When the Rolling Stones released the song, “Brown Sugar,” there was immediate speculation that it referred to singer, novelist, actress and model Marsha Hunt. In her 1985 autobiography, Real Life, Hunt acknowledged that “Brown Sugar” is about her. Jagger and Hunt had a daughter together in 1970.
