Armed with a digital camera, Varda travels through the French countryside and Parisian streets to celebrate those who find use in discarded objects. Throughout, she finds affinity as a gleaner of images, emotions and stories, and expands a poetic exploration of gleaning into an innovative self-portrait. This seminal work, referred to by Varda as a ‘wandering-road documentary,’ explores her creative process and approach to making film and art.

Joint ticket available with The Gleaners and I: Two Years Later on Friday 13 July, £15, concs £12 (Members pay £2 less).

There will be a free Future Film Recommends post-screening discussion in the Blue Room for 16 to 25-year-olds after the Tuesday 17 July 18:30 screening.
