Award-winning filmmaker David Fincher is working with Netflix on an upcoming documentary called Voir which will be presented as series of visual essays celebrating cinema.
Fincher will executive produce the series and David Prior will direct, though, very little else has been revealed about the project so far. According to writer Drew McWeeny, who is collaborating with Fincher and Prior on the documentary, the series of 10 to 30-minute essays are about “something that intrigues us or upsets us or that has to do with our connection to the movies.”
