The Gleaners and I (U)

SUNDAY 29 SEPTEMBER, 17.00, THE RED LION

An intriguing cross-country journey exploring poverty, thrift and the curious position of scavenging in French history and culture. 

Agnès Varda became fascinated with the 1857 painting The Gleaners by Jean-François Millet and in response, spent eight months following 'scavengers' of all conceptions - from those picking throw other's leftovers to artists who would create with found objects. This is a film about value and what people treasure, and a captivating glimpse into the meaning we put into things.
