Mêlant les témoignages de certains de ses plus proches compagnons à de nombreux extraits de ses films, Chris Marker, Never Explain, Never Complain retrace les grands temps de cette cinématographie unique, épousant à travers elle, les formes et les questionnements de l’engagement cinématographique et politique de la seconde moitié du 20e siècle.

A writer, filmmaker, essayist, world traveller, photographer, engaged intellectual and eulogist of the imaginary, who played a little piano, painted a little too, and liked animals, Chris Marker over sixty years explored most of the human means of expression. Mixing interviews with some of his close companions and numerous excerpts from his films, Chris Marker, Never Explain, Never Complain retraces the major periods of this unique body of film work, following through its trajectory the forms and questions raised by political and cinematic engagement in the second half of the twentieth century.
