The Gleaners and I, a film by acclaimed French filmmaker Agnes Varda, documents various types of gleaners – in fields, cities, and junkyards – as they recover food and other found objects. Named one of the BBC’s 100 greatest films of the 21st Century, The Gleaners and I offers a unique window into the ancient practice of gleaning and how it manifests in all aspects of life.
The screening, hosted by the AS220 Main Stage and Gallery, on Saturday, Febuarary 29th.
