Les glaneurs et la glaneuse
A contemporary poem about waste and overconsumption.
"Glaner": glean, to collect the grains leftover after harvesting. Across France, Agnès Varda has been meeting the “gleaners” of the 21st century. Out of need or choice, they collect up what other people no longer want: wonky vegetables, items needing mending, unsold supermarket goods... Their world is surprising.
Director: Agnès Varda (France, 2000)
