One can never stop at the surface, no matter how attractive its form may be, because the way a current looks does not say anything about the river's nature said Joris Ivens who asked Chris Marker to write a commentary to a documentary about a Chilean port town. A Dutch filmmaker who has significantly influenced the world documentary filmmaking, was in Cuba shooting a documentary about the post-revolutionary situation in the form a traveller's journal, but A Valparaíso that is characterised by excellent montage skills and unusual, innovative use of colours belongs to the poetic line of his oeuvre.
