Cohen Media Group has acquired all North American distribution rights and world sales rights outside France, Germany and China to an untitled documentary currently in production by Agnès Varda and the artist known as JR.
The Untitled Agnès Varda And JR Project is on schedule to be completed this year and will focus on faces, encounters, huge images related to people and mostly the growth of an unlikely friendship between a 33-year-old youngster and an 88-year-old lady.
Cohen Media Group executive vice-president John Kochman brokered the deal with producer Rosalie Varda on behalf of Cine Tamaris and JR’s production company Social Animals.
“As my life draws to a close, I find myself wanting to see ever more faces, to film or photograph them, to keep them in images if not in my memory,” said Varda.
“JR, with his imagination and talent, gives me the opportunity to create with him new ways to share images.”
“Agnès Varda is a visionary director,” said Charles S Cohen. “Her curiosity about the world she lives in has fed her amazing work for more than 60 years, and she finds yet more to say and reveal in this unique work that will captivate all who experience it.”
