The Cinema Guild has picked up the U.S. digital and non-theatrical rights to “Agnes Varda From Here To There,” a documentary series directed by Agnes Varda
Made up of five 45-minute episodes, the series chronicles Varda’s travels around the world as she examines the global art scene, meeting with different artists and filmmakers, including directors Alexander Sokurov and Carlos Reygadas, sculptor Christian Boltanski and his partner, artist Annette Messager. She visits with Chris Marker at his home shortly before he passed away, and dances with Manoel de Oliveira.
“Agnes Varda From Here To There” originally aired in Europe on Arte in 2011.
The deal was negotiated by Ryan Krivoshey of The Cinema Guild and Cecilia Rose of Cine-Tamaris, and the series will be released across multiple digital platforms later this year.
