Pioneer of the essay film, photographer, artist, and cat lover, Chris 
Marker will be missed. From 1967 to 1976, Marker was a member of the 
film cooperative SLON (Société pour le Lancement des Oeuvres Nouvelles / 
Society for the Production of New Works), which was dedicated to 
activist film production, based on the idea that cinema should not be 
thought of solely in terms of commerce. To inspire new activist 
filmmaking and to pay tribute to this prolific and influential figure, 
we bring two SLON produced works. A bientôt j'espère depicts workers at 
a textile factory on strike in pre-May 1968 France and The Sixth Side of 
the Pentagon chronicles the 1967 Mobilization to End the War in Vietnam 
protest march on the Pentagon.
