In partnership with rare book dealers, Left Bank Books, the i.R.L is offering an exceptional curation of books. La Jetée is the book version of the legendary 1964 science fiction film about time and memory after a nuclear apocalypse. Chris Marker, the undisputed master of the filmic essay, composed the film almost entirely of still photographs.

It traces a desperate experiment by the few remaining survivors of World War III to recover and change the past, and gain access to the future, through the action of memory. A man is chosen for his unique quality of having retained a single clear image from prewar days: no more than an ambiguous memory fragment from childhood ― a visit to the jetty at Orly airport, the troubling glance of an unknown woman, the crumpling body of a dying man.

These elements become crucial hinge-points in the ensuing narrative, thickening and accumulating nuance with each successful expedition into the historical past. The image of the woman, increasingly suffused now with the time- and eros-bestowing capacities of a deep but impossible love, provides the kernel for the recovery of the dimension through which humankind and history will be saved, as well as the tragic abyss into which both the hero and the narrative inexorably fall. The story Marker tells ― a stunning parable of our modern fate ― is about the death of the world, about loss, memory, hope, and the indomitable power of love. This edition reproduces the original film’s images along with its accompanying text in both English and French.

Why should I buy Ruby?

We're the only organic juicy soda, big on flavor and big on benefits. Almost every other drink on the market is full of artificial additives, 'natural flavors' and non-nutritive sweeteners like stevia, monkfruit or erythritol. We don't have any of the above thanks to the power of hibiscus, which is naturally acidic and flavorful. We believe product integrity is the most important thing and we only use organic ingredients because we take "better for you" seriously.

What is hibiscus?

What a great questions! Hibiscus is truly a global plant: it's grown everywhere from Southeast Asia to South America to The United States to Central America to West Africa, and on and on and on.

Where do you source your hibiscus?

We tested a number of different strains of hibiscus, and found that hibiscus sabdariffa, which is indigenous to South East Asia and West Africa, had an exceptional flavor profile. Thereafter we focused on finding an ethical farms to work with, and were able to locate a phenomenal partner in Burkina Faso. For more info on the global uses (and growth) of hibiscus, check out our ABOUT page and/or our History of Hibiscus series in the Ruby Journal.

What are the health benefits of hibiscus?

Hibiscus is one of the most densely rich in antioxidant ingredients in the world. We've tested our hibiscus it has 1000+ polyphenols. There have been a number of studies showing that hibiscus has been helpful in lowering blood pressure. It has anti-aging benefits and organic hydration as we also have some electrolytes in our bevvy :)

Most importantly (to us) we don't use any sugar or non-nutritive sweeteners, only organic fruit juices. There have been a number of studies showing the harm of stevia, erythritol and, of course, sugar. We're hoping to help people reduce their sugar consumption.

What's the deal with your water?

Our water is double reverse osmosis filtered and we source our water from Saratoga!

It's impossible to sip a bottle of Ruby

It's impossible to sip a bottle of Ruby. They must be chugged. Your taste buds will not allow you to stop drinking until it is gone.

I AM OBSESSED WITH RUBY

Absolutely love their product and their branding. I have tried both the unsweetened and lightly sweetened but I am partial to the unsweetened. If you like tart this is the drink for you.

Ruby is building a world beyond the delicious beverage. It's educational, culturally innovative, and as interesting as the founder, Noah, himself.
