Cinema’s ability to evoke the knotty complexities of time, truth, and subjective experience makes it an ideal medium for exploring memory, a theme that has long been a source of fascination for artists. This week on the Criterion Channel, our series Memory on Film highlights some of the world’s most celebrated auteurs and their haunting journeys through lost time, including an operatic portrait of grief from Krzysztof Kieślowski, a radical travelogue from Chris Marker, and an aching meditation on forbidden love from Wong Kar-wai. For a preview of this seven-film selection, check out the teaser below.
