The Gleaners & I

Les glaneurs et la glaneuse

Directed by Agnès Varda
France, 2000
Documentary

Synopsis

Varda’s rumination on this art of “living off the leftovers of others” finds inspiration in both past and present, rural and urban, the political and the highly personal. Camera in hand, Varda interviews those for whom gleaning is a way of life, or an encompassing philosophy.
