Plot: Veteran French filmmaker Agnes Varda adds a triumphant and ultra-contemporary chapter to her life's work of cinematic investigations into the lives of characters relegated to societies margins (usually women) with the graceful and compelling documentary, THE GLEANERS AND I. Departing from Jean-Francois Millet's celebrated 1867 portrait of women picking through a harvested wheat field entitled "Les Glaneuses," Varda constructs a modest and compassionate visual essay on the concept and lifestyle of "gleaning" or scavenging, once ubiquitous in rural 19th Century France. With digital camera in hand, Varda vagabonds around France in search of the 21st Century's incarnation of the gleaners. From potato fields in central France, to abandoned vineyards in Burgundy, to supermarket dumpsters in Paris, Varda's film portrays a completely surprising and ultimately complex populace, who subsist off of the waste of others. The film's casual style allows the intelligence, dignity, and honesty of the subjects to shine through as Varda herself pieces together a modern aesthetic and ideology of gleaning. With affectionate humor and searching intelligence, Varda points the camera at herself, marveling at her own process of aging and the gleaning that lies at the center of her own art and life.
