Attention cinephiles: SundanceNOW Doc Club has a juicy slate of streaming titles coming up. This May, the online VOD service will present a fantastic array of films from experimental director Chris Marker. Then in June, SundanceNOW will also host the exclusive US premiere of French auteur Agnes Varda’s TV miniseries “Agnes Varda From Here to There.”

Handpicked by renowned TIFF documentary programmer Thom Powers, here’s the streaming lineup for May’s “Chris Marker and His Legacy” series, which includes several enticing online debuts:

  • “Sixth Side of the
    Pentagon” (1967)
  • “Chris Marker’s Bestiary” (1994) — ONLINE DEBUT

    Andrei Arsenevich” (1999) — ONLINE DEBUT

SundanceNOW will also stream a selection of films inspired by Marker’s work: “To Chris Marker, An Unsent Letter” (2013) by director Emiko Omori, Jem Cohen’s wonderful “Museum Hours” (2012) and “Description of a Memory” (2012) from Dan Geva.

Then in June, SundanceNOW presents the stateside streaming premiere of French New Wave director Agnes Varda’s documentary miniseries “Agnes Varda From Here to There,” which originally aired on French television. This sprawling film chronicles Varda’s travels around the world, and her encounters with Marker, Manoel
de Oliveira and Alexander Sokurov, among other celebrated international filmmakers and artists, across five 45-minute episodes.

In conjunction with The Cinema Guild, Varda’s “The Beaches of Agnes,” “Daguerreotypes,” “Cinevardaphoto” and “The Gleaners and I” will also be available to stream. Here’s how to subscribe to SundanceNOW.
