12 Monkeys was one of my favourite science fiction/post apocalyptic movies. So what influence behind this movie by Terry Gilliam?

French short film, La jetée (The Jetty) by Chris Marker was made in 1962 and is a 28-minute black and white movie made from photos, it tells the story of a post apocalyptic time travel experiment.
