THE GLEANERS & I (G, 2000) 82min
Genre: Documentary. Dir: Agnès Varda. Country: France. English subtitles.
An 1867 painting by Jean-Francois Millet inspired septuagenarian documentarian Agnès Varda (Faces Places) to cross the French countryside to videotape people who scavenge.
The ‘gleaners’ range from those sadly in need to those hoping to recreate the community activity of centuries past.
This is a bewitching documentary that mischievously fuses the past with the present, the rich with the poor, the idle with the workaholic
