Summary Chris Marker's epic film essay on the worldwide political wars of the 60's and 70's: Vietnam, Bolivia, May '68, Prague, Chile, and the fate of the New Left. This sweeping, global contemplation of a defining decade's political history is divided into two parts, each part woven together to describe what Marker has called "scenes of the Third World War."
