My Favorite Film: The Gleaners & I

« All Events

May 2 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Agnès Varda’s first experiment with shooting digitally begins by studying the history of “gleaners” – people along the French countryside who scavenge the surplus of fields from the main harvest. The film evolves into an exploration of modern “gleaners” – those living on the margins who survive on what society tosses aside. In the end, Varda’s film transforms into a meditation on art and life, as she puts herself into the documentary. Philosophical, whimsical, curious, and humane, THE GLEANERS & I exemplifies the qualities for which Varda is most admired. In French w/ subtitles.

My Favorite Film is an ongoing series that allows staff at the Garden Theatre to pick and present their favorite films to our engaged community of cinephiles. This month’s selection of THE GLEANERS & I will be introduced by our Educational Programs Coordinator, Julia, as her favorite film.
