Netflix and David Fincher have a love affair that has now lasted for nearly a decade now. And over that time, Fincher has produced a number of series, ranging from dramas such as “House of Cards” and “Mindhunter” to the animated anthology series, “Love, Death + Robots.” For his next series on the streaming service, Fincher is tackling the world of film studies with a visual essay series titled “Voir.”
As seen in the trailer for “Voir,” the new six-episode series aims to break down the reason why people love cinema through various legendary films and iconic moments in the medium. With the visual essay format, we’re able to hear stories from those who adore the medium and are able to express how certain scenes, actors, filmmakers, and features have transcended to become legendary.
The episodes feature stories told by film journalists such as Drew McWeeny, Taylor Ramos, Sasha Stone, Tony Zhou, and Playlist contributor Walter Chaw. As mentioned, the series is executive produced by David Fincher and David Prior. “Voir” marks the latest in a long series of collaborations between Fincher and Netflix, running through various aforementioned series and of course the feature film, “Mank.”
“Voir” debuts on Netflix on December 6. You can watch the trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis:
From executive producers David Fincher and David Prior, VOIR is a series of visual essays celebrating Cinema and the personal connection we each have to the stories we see on the big screen. From intimate personal histories to insights on character and craft, each episode reminds us why Cinema holds a special place in our lives.
