The Gleaners and I (Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse): dir Agnès Varda (2000)

9 November @ 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm

AED 52.50

Agnès Varda focuses her eye on gleaners, these people who pick up left-over discarded items – food, knicknacks, thrown away items, and personal connections too – in this much-awarded documentary. Her thoughts on her life as a filmmaker (a gleaner of sorts) give her a connection to her subjects that creates a touching human portrait.

Varda famously asked everyone she knew to talk to everyone they knew to find her subjects. “The more l met them, the more I could see I had nothing to make as a statement. They make the statement; they explain the subject better than anybody.”

Shows in Cinema Akil’s short Agnès Varda retrospective.
