What's with all the paintings of smiling yellow cats popping up all over Paris? French film "essayist" Chris Marker ("La Jetee") has noticed, and he's on the case. Employing his engaging and idiosyncratic style, Marker offers a memorable analysis of art and politics that sheds light on contemporary French culture and the activism surrounding the war in Iraq. 58 min. Soundtrack: English; bonus shorts "Three Cheers For The Whale" (1972), "Leila Attacks" (2006), others.
