(Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse)
Agnès Varda, 2000. Color. 82 min.
With Agnès Varda, Bodan Litnanski
In French with English subtitles
In a striking hybrid of documentary and personal essay, Varda travels widely through France exploring the significance of modern-day foraging — from gathering misshapen potatoes left behind in the countryside to scavenging for stale loaves in the Paris trash.
Talkback after the film with Madeline Nelson, Coordinator of NYC Freegans, and Curator Derek Denckla, concerning the implications of a life lived according to the credo: Recycle :: Restore :: Renew.
