  • Here and there in France, Agnès Varda has come across gleaners, foragers, rummagers and scavengers. Through necessity, purely by chance or out of choice these people pick up left-over items discarded by others.
  • Their world is a surprising one. It is a far cry from the world of yesterday’s gleaners, peasant women who rummaged for bits of wheat left after the harvest. Potatoes, apples and other discarded foodstuffs, things without owners, clocks without hands are the fare of today’s gleaners.
  • But Agnès Varda herself is just as much a gleaner, and her documentary is subjective. There is no age limit to curiosity. Filming itself is gleaning. This documentary is both a diary and a kind of extended essay on poverty, thrift and the curious place of scavenging in French history and culture.
Directed by Agnès Varda

Cinema Spotlight: Agnès Varda gives you a chance to take a dive into the gorgeous, quirky and curious work of filmmaker Agnès Varda, “Mother of French New Wave” who passed away in 2019 at the age of 90. Varda’s filmmaking conventions pre-dated many of her better known male colleagues within the French New Wave movement, including Jean-Luc Goddard and François Truffaut, while her early films established Varda as a feminist icon. Films included in SPOTLIGHT: Agnès Varda are VARDA BY AGNÈS, CLEO FROM 5 TO 7, ONE SINGS THE OTHER DOESN’T, THE GLEANERS AND I, and FACES/PLACES.
