The video embedded below is a portion of French filmmaker Agnès Varda‘s television documentary series Agnès de ci de là Varda. This excerpt showcases a friendly profile of her longtime friend Chris Marker. Varda explores Marker’s “magnificent mess” of a home studio, talks to the notoriously secretive artist about a number of topics, and even showcases the virtual life that Marker has created for himself in the game Second Life.

Don’t forget that TIFF Cinematheque’s film series Remembrance of Things to Come: Works By Chris Marker keeps on going strong later today with a screening of Marker’s essential 1977 work A Grin Without a Cat.

The program will conclude tomorrow evening with two of Marker’s highly-regarded late period films: One Day in the Life of Andrei Arsenevich (1999) and The Case of the Grinning Cat (2004).
