Voir: Netflix and David Fincher team up for cinema documentary
James R | On 14, Oct 2021
Netflix and David Fincher are teaming up for a new documentary series about cinema, called Voir.
From executive producer David Fincher and directed by David Prior, Taylor Ramos and Tony Zhou, the series is a collection of visual essays celebrating cinema, from the mind of one of film’s modern masters.
The series, which was announced by Netflix this week – after a cryptic tweet that led to some fans hoping for a Mindhunter movie or a Mank sequel – will hail from not only Fincher and The Empty Man helmer Prior but also other contributors. One of them is Drew McWeeny, a former staff member of Ain’t It Cool News and HitFix, who has written one episode.
He wrote on his own site about the series: “We’re not trying to sell you anything, and we’re not interviewing anyone about what Marvel movies they’re doing. We’re each tackling a totally different idea, something that intrigues us or upsets us or that has to do with our connection to the movies.”
Voir will premiere at AFI Fest in November, and will be released on Netflix at an unconfirmed date.
