La Jetee is a groundbreaking short film composed almost entirely of still images. The inspiration for Twelve Monkeys, this film involves a stand of human survivors sending a traveller back through time to help save the human race. The traveller, who narrates the movie, tells the story of the near destruction of humanity and the society that has emerged. The narrator’s own haunting story is what makes this film truly mesmerizing.
