The Gleaners and I: My Favorite Film Series, Princeton Garden Theater

Thursday May 2, 2024
7:00 PM

Agnès Varda's first experiment with shooting digitally begins by studying the history of "gleaners" – people along the French countryside who scavenge the surplus of fields from the main harvest. The film evolves into an exploration of modern "gleaners" – those living on the margins who survive on what society tosses aside. In the end, Varda's film transforms into a meditation on art and life, as she puts herself into the documentary. Philosophical, whimsical, curious, and humane, The Gleaners & I exemplifies the qualities for which Varda is most admired. In French w/ subtitles. $13.50.
