Iconic French Director Agnes Varda Sets Off to New Film Journey with MK2 (EXCLUSIVE)

Rolling off an honorary Oscar and worldwide acclaim for “Faces Places,” iconic French auteur Agnes Varda is reteaming with MK2 for her next untitled documentary project which she will co-direct with Didier Rouget.

Described by MK2 as an “unpredictable documentary” from a “fascinating storyteller,” Varda’s next film will shed light on her own experience as a director, bringing a very personal insight on what she calls “cine-writing,” traveling from rue Daguerre in Paris to Los Angeles and Beijing.

“Agnès Varda says curiosity and desire to create are endless and very catching. This new project really is about transmission”, explained Rosalie Varda, who is the director’s daughter and is producing the documentary at Paris-based banner Ciné Tamaris.

MK2 will start pre-selling the highly-anticipated documentary project at the UniFrance Rendez-Vous with French Cinema which kicks off today in Paris. MK2 recently acquired worldwide sales rights to the Agnes Varda and Jacques Demy film library, said Juliette Schrameck, managing director of MK2 Films

“This new documentary, which is also a very unique and personal masterclass, gives her own vision of her art and will certainly fascinate all the cinema lovers in the world,” said Schrameck, who added that the documentary will include a flurry of special guests.

Rouget has been a close collaborator to Varda for decades, starting with “Jacquot” in 1991.

The documentary is currently in production (pictured is an exclusive first still) and is expected to be delivered in the Spring.

Varda’s last film, “Faces Places,” which she co-directed with the artist JR, played at Cannes, Toronto among many other festivals and won Toronto’s People Choice Award.
