The Gleaners and I
Les glaneurs et la glaneuse

Tuesday, September 14 at 7pm
FIAF, Florence Gould Hall

Directed by Agnès Varda, 2000. Color. 82 min.
With Agnès Varda, Bodan Litnanski.
In French with English subtitles.

In this stirring cross between documentary and personal reflection, legendary filmmaker Agnès Varda explores the hidden value of discarded foodstuffs as a metaphor for making art and savoring life: gleaners who pick knobby potatoes left behind by farmers, chefs that forage—rather than buy—herbs, and dumpster divers who seek fruits and bread loaves amongst Paris trash.

A Q&A will follow the film with Madeline Nelson, Moderator of NYC Freegan Meetup, reflecting on her personal and political experiences with gleaning and foraging in New York City.
