The Gleaners and I


Past event

Philip Carter Family Auditorium


In celebration of our exhibition Leaving for Work, join us for a screening of Agnès Varda's documentary masterpiece. 

2000, 82 minutes, PG

Varda focuses her acclaimed non-fiction film on the 'gleaners', those who scour already-reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. Her investigation leads us from forgotten corners of the French countryside to off-hours at the green markets of Paris, following those who insist on finding a use for that which society has cast off, whether out of necessity or activism. "Profound, poetic and moving!" said Chicago film critic Roger Ebert.
