GLEANING TRUTHS: THE GLEANERS AND I

Dir: Agnès Varda
France / 2000 / 82mins

"A protest film that's part social critique, part travelogue, but always an unsentimental celebration of human resilience." - L.A Weekly

In 2000, Agnès Varda travelled the French countryside to study the world of foragers and scavengers called The Gleaners. Describing herself as a gleaner of ideas and images from interior as well as exterior journeys gives the director a special connection with her subjects in this honest and intriguing documentary.

Screens as part of Gleaning Truths at Curzon Bloomsbury, presenting eight feature-length fiction and documentary films from Agnès Varda.
