The Gleaners & I
+ pre-recorded intro by director Zhu Shengze
Les glaneurs et la glaneuse
Agnès Varda’s ‘wandering-road documentary’ details a fascinating way of life.
Dir Agnès Varda
With her usual deep sense of humanity and curiosity, Agnès Varda travels through the French countryside and Parisian streets to introduce us to a range of contemporary gleaners – those who find second use in discarded objects. Throughout she finds affinity as a gleaner of images, emotions and stories. Termed a ‘wandering-road documentary’ by Varda herself, this seminal work explores aspects of sustainable living and artistic practice.
