The Gleaners And I

A film all about finding value where others see nothing, this beautiful and eccentric documentary is the result of filmmaker Agnes Varda spending a year touring France to find and talk to the people who scavenge and salvage food left over by others. 

Ranging from those who glean to survive, to artists, activists and workers who use scavenged goods, the film ably examines class and culture, and even finds time to reflect upon the nature of cinema too. Bewitching.
