In spirit of the final days of streaming service SundanceNow Doc Club's online Agnes Varda retrospective, hand-curated by film programmer Thom Powers, TOH! has the exclusive on a new video essay that takes a peek at the irreverent French auteur's career. Watch below.

Through July, you can watch "From Here to There" on SundanceNow Doc Club. It's a fascinating five-part documentary series that follows Varda as she wends her way through the international art scene, encountering friends and fellow filmmakers including the late Chris Marker, Manoel de Oliveira, Jacques Demy and more.

Thanks to Doc Club, you can also watch Varda classics "The Gleaners and I," "The Beaches of Agnes," "Daguerreotypes" and "Cinevardaphoto." Varda will be featured until July 1, but Doc Club members can still access the films via the Sundance archives.
